Around 1974, most Western European countries abandoned policies of migrant labour recruitment, and moved towards increasingly restrictive entry rules.

Temporary or seasonal migrant worker programs have already been introduced in a number of countries. This paper inquires whether Europe is likely to return to pre-1974 migrant labour approaches.
