Abstract [en]

This article investigates the influence and agency of employers for international labour migration through a case study on networks and migration to a county in Sweden in the decades after the end of the Second World War. Earlier research has focused on the supply-side of networks, such as contacts between migrants and prospective migrants and their place of origin, and how such relations led to cumulative effects, with increased migration over time. This article shows how employers in Västmanland County were, sometimes with the help of government agencies, able to solve their labour requirements through the active creation of migration networks. The article contributes to a deeper understanding of the functions of networks for international migration through developments on the demand-side of labour markets.
