In accessing cross-border social rights, EU movers encounter barriers related to language, lack of knowledge of their entitlements and, at times, discriminatory practices at the administrative level. Against this background, the presentation explores the emergence of welfare brokers in the context of intra-EU migration – that is, non-profit, public sector and market actors that help migrants overcome barriers in accessing formal social protection.

Drawing on semi-structured interviews with Romanian migrants in Germany, as well as with representatives of companies, civil society organizations and other types of intermediaries, this research addresses the following questions: How do welfare brokers shape the interaction between migrants and welfare states? What categories of brokers step in between migrants and social protection systems? How do migrants engage with welfare brokers?
