Abstract:Achieving sustainable welfare states is one of the main goals the European Union has set itself. However, the current decline of the working-age population will undermine this future aim. The financing of welfare systems becomes problematic. In light of these demographic challenges, it is crucial for the EU to increase its labor market participation A group of particular concern is migrants who have a low employment rate, especially migrant women. Compared to female natives, their employment rates are low. Nevertheless, not every EU member state experiences this phenomenon to a similar extent: variation exists. In this study I want to find out to what extent the employment status of female migrants can be explained by their sociocultural background. A comparison will be made with their female native counterparts.
