This chapter outlines the research methodology of the study. It argues that a Qualitative Panel Study represents an innovative methodological tool to study the worklife pathways of migrants in a dynamic manner. As migrants are increasingly mobile not only across countries but also within national labour markets, a repeat interview methodology enables researchers to trace the careers of migrants across organisational and national boundaries. The chapter further outlines the rationale for also interviewing employers and recruitment agencies as part of the study of migration and work. To contextualise the choices of both sides of the employment relationship in the broader socio-economic context, the research has been complemented with stakeholder interviews and an analysis of labour market data.
