Abstract:     
Legislation concerning labour and social rights of migrant workers is one of the areas of Russian law which undergo at least minor changes almost every year. All these recent changes tend to have the same direction of narrowing the scope of options for a migrant to find a work in Russia, at least a legitimate one.

One of the main purposes declared by the government is to reduce the crime rate, which is said to have some indisputable relation to the number of migrant workers employed in these sectors. The other purpose of these measures is said to be intent to improve the health of the Russian citizens and provide them with more jobs.

These steps have aroused very controversial response among different groups of stakeholders. This report is intended to assess the situation and all the responses in the comparative context of international and foreign labour and social security law and practice.
