Abstract: The paper studies the impact of migration policy liberalisation on international labour migration in the enlarged EU by applying a structural NEG approach. The liberalisation of migration policy would induce additional 1.80 - 2.98 percent of the total EU workforce to change their country of location, with most of migrant workers relocating from the East to the West. The average net migration rate is decreasing in the level of integration.
