Capturing the ephemeral: How much labour do temporary migrants contribute in OECD countries?

This chapter addresses the impact of temporary migration on the host country labour market. It provides the first estimation of the additional labour contributed in full-year equivalent by temporary migrants to the employed population in 20 OECD countries. The chapter covers all forms of temporary migration, such as temporary labour migrants, international students, participants in cultural exchange programmes, service providers, accompanying families of temporary labour migrants, free-movement migrants and even cross-border workers.
