In 2003, the European Court of Justice changed the face of labour migration when they decided that the Cotonou Agreement included free movement of workers within its scope. What followed was a period of upheaval which caused the rethinking of many immigration policies. Using top-level county cricket in England as a case study, this book attempts to show how immigration policies could be redrawn in light of the new interpretation of the Agreement. The subsequent changes in the labour law landscape show the ever-shifting nature of the discipline, and this book attempts to draw conclusions which can be used in the future formulation of immigration policies.
