Date of news: 31 August 2018

On 10 November 2017, experts from various backgrounds joined in a seminar organized by Tesseltje de Lange of the University of Amsterdam and the Centre for Migration Law, Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, at Radboud University, Nijmegen in the Netherlands. The seminar focused on Directive 2014/66 on the conditions of entry and residence of third-country nationals in the framework of an intra-corporate transfer, of which the deadline for transposition expired in November 2016.

This seminar resulted in the book: The Intra Corporate Transferee Directive: Central Themes, Problem Issues and Implementation in Selected Member States.

This so called ICT Directive regulates the temporary secondment of managers, specialists or trainee employees who are transferred from a company outside the EU to an entity of the same undertaking or group of undertakings inside the EU, while staying on their home country employment contract, and who reside outside the EU at the time of application. This book highlights the central themes, problem issues and implementation in selected Member States of this ICT Directive.

The contributions to this book are based on lectures presented at the seminar. These contributions deal with the negotiations and transposition of the Directive, the role employment and social security rights play in the ICT Directive, a comparison with the EU Russia Agreement of 1997 as well as a business perspective and a migrants’ rights perspective. And it discusses the implementation in The Netherlands, Germany, Spain and Sweden.

The book is published by Wolf Publishers (2018).
