This paper sets out to examine the processes of racialisation of temporary migrant or ‘foreign’ 1 labour in Cyprus, a country traditionally exporting migrants but recently transformed into one of hosting migrants. It considers policies and rights relating to migrant workers and examines discourses around migration found in the Greek Cypriot pressand magazines. It also examines the role of employers and trade unions in the racialisation of migrant workers. It considers how conceptualisations of ‘race’ and racism, and their interrelation with class are useful in understanding and explaining the processes by which people are excluded, inferiorised and exploited.
