Can Eurasian Labour Law Follow the EU Integration Path?

Russian Law: theory and practice. 2014. No. 2. P. 102-110.
Lyutov N.

Since January 1, 2012 Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia have established a free movement of labour force within the territory of each other1. The politicians have announced that by 2015 this regional integration area will have been transformed into the Eurasian Economic Union with a perspective to become a “Eurasian Union” as a deeper confederative structure2. There are political discussions about the inclusion of some other post-USSR countries in this process. The parallels of this regional integration project with the EU integration process are obvious. But there are also serious diff erences between them. This article is aimed at pointing out some of these parallels and diff erences in order to understand what may be a general prospect for such labour law harmonisation.
