ABSTRACT
Europe's survival and future growth as a community of free people may depend on its ability to become politically and economically unified. The free movement of population, especially the movement of workers, is essential to such unification. Substantial international differences in unemployed labor and manpower potential, however, have reinforced political and cultural barriers and have resulted in legal obstacles to the free movement of workers among European labor markets. The author of this article analyzes the elements of this aspect of the unification problem and appraises a recent agreement intended to promote increased labor mobility among the OEEC countries.
