Are EU policies on legal migration fit for managing and governing the movement of people across borders?
Over the past 15 years, the ‘Europeanisation’ of policies dealing with the conditions of entry and residence of non-EU nationals has led to the development of a common EU acquis. However, questions related to policy consistency, legal certainty and fair and non-discriminatory treatment in working and living standards still characterise the EU’s legal framework for cross-border mobility.
Co-organised by the JHA section at CEPS and the Legal Migration Unit in DG HOME of the European Commission, this lunchtime meeting will give participants the opportunity to discuss the extent to which the current EU and Member State legal migration policies match the transnational mobility of individuals today.
The event will also coincide with the official launch of the new CEPS Paperback entitled Pathways towards Legal Migration into the EU: Reappraising concepts, trajectories and policies. An electronic version of the book can be downloaded here.
Bringing together the latest knowledge available, this collective volume reappraises the added value of the EU in this important policy area and assesses the need for a revised set of EU policy priorities in implementing a new generation of legal pathways for migration.
