The European Union and the global challenge of migration
Description of call
"The European Union and the global challenge of migration"

The migration crisis in the Mediterranean has put the spotlight on immediate needs. But it has also revealed much about the structural limitations of EU migration policy and the tools at its disposal. This is an opportunity for the EU to face up to the need to strike the right balance in its migration policy and send a clear message to citizens that migration can be better managed collectively by all EU actors.

 

It is thus essential that the EU continues to engage in a broad debate on the links between its migration policies and other policies with an external dimensions including, but not limited to its foreign and development policies. The European policy for asylum, refugees, visas, external border regime, detention centres should be assessed. Research should also make recommendations on how to tackle migrant smuggling and those who profit from it.

 

The research to address this challenge should focus on one or two dimensions that have to be comprehensively addressed:

 

  • An integrated approach to migration and development
  • EU policy coherence and migration

 

At least 1 proposal per topic will be selected for funding provided it passes all evaluation thresholds
