Launch of MEDAM Assessment Report on Asylum and Migration Policies in Europe

Mass migration, forced displacement, and ongoing conflicts will remain dominant issues for several years to come. At the same time, national governments are confronted with short-term democratic cycles and an increasingly toxic public debate about asylum and immigration policies. As a result, policymakers and citizens throughout the EU are uncertain about the best way forward for policies on asylum, immigration, and immigrant integration. MEDAM researchers will present the first Assessment Report on Asylum and Migration Policies in Europe, setting out challenges and priorities as the EU and its member states shift from emergency response mode to discussing a more durable asylum and migration regime. Among others, the report addresses the following questions: How can responsibility for refugees be shared more effectively at the global and the EU-level? How to curb irregular immigration into the EU while ensuring protection to the individuals who flee from persecution and violence? What drives decisions to emigrate? What determines labor market integration of immigrants in the destination countries? What shapes public opinion and the individual attitudes of a local population toward migrants and immigration?
