Post-enlargement migration is increasingly bringing scholarly atte ntion to the tensions arising between the normative ideas of European citizenships and the substantive ri ghts of the EU nationals working in another EU member state. The question is how family friendl y are the EU ’ s normative conceptions of the mobile workers? Policy approaches to free movement of individua ls within the EU give their primacy to paid work and economic benefits of mobility, while neglecting to consider the added challenges that migration poses to migrants with family o bligations. This paper seeks to investigate how the stratification of the European citizens according to the ir position as workers, family-members and self-sufficient persons shapes the EU nationals ’ social rights in the Swedish welfare, especially in relation to their family obligations. The object of the an alysis is what is included as ‘ work ’ in the EU and the Swedish regulations on the free-movers in contrast to t he accounts of the working life among the migrants from Poland and Romania migrants working in t he low-wage labour market in Sweden. Research for this paper is drawn from a larger research pr oject on Care-giving arrangements in the enlarged Europe: migrants ’ parental strategies and the role of institutional context in Sweden , carried out in collaboration with two other researchers, Ingrid Höje r and Charlotte Melander . Applying Anderson ’ s (2015) analytical approach to migration and the worker citiz en , the core issues of the analysis will be on the dimensions of time, informality, pre carious labour relations and their implications for the gender ed and family relations among the post-accession migrants in Sw eden. The paper argues that the migrant parents ’ work status and work relations in Sweden are not static and carries with them further challenges for the entire migran t families, whose rights to welfare and family life are conditional and highly stratified according to the pri nciple of dependency on the primary migrant.
