: The European Labour Authority in Practice
In this study, we provide an overview of the recently established European Labour Authority (ELA), its goals and powers, before offering a preliminary analysis of ELA. In brief, ELA is an agency with the broad and important objective of improving the enforcement of mobile workers' rights in the EU, but with limited competences and resources. ELA essentially depends on the willingness of national authorities to cooperate through exchange of information and coordinated enforcement action. Nevertheless, our evidence collected from interviews with various stakeholders suggests that it can pro-vide added value in particular by connecting members of national enforcement authorities.
