EU Migrant Immigration

On 13 May, the European Commission is set to adopt the European Agenda on Migration, putting forward the key principles and actions in this area for 2015-2020.

Announced from the outset as one of the ten political priorities of President Jean-Claude Juncker, this Agenda will offer an ambitious and comprehensive plan to manage migration better, both in the immediate term as well as in the long run.

The four pillars of this common approach will be a strong common asylum policy, the fight against trafficking and the prevention of irregular migration, managing external borders, and a new policy on legal migration.

The background:

The European Agenda on Migration will offer a new approach to more than twenty years of asylum and migration policy at the EU level, following the Extraordinary European Council Conclusions of April 2015, the Resolution of the European Parliament of April 2015, the Political Guidelines of President Jean-Claude Juncker of July 2014, and the Strategic Guidelines of the European Council of June 2014.
