EPIM Policy Update February 2019

EPIM Policy Updates are developed as a resource for organisations interested in European policy developments in the area of migration and integration. The European Policy Centre (EPC), a Brussels-based think tank, has been commissioned to produce these Policy Updates, which are released five times a year.

EPIM Policy Updates address topics relevant to EPIM’s Thematic Funds: Immigration Detention; Reforming the Common European Asylum System; Children and Youth on the Move; Mobile EU Citizens’ Access to Rights; and Building Inclusive European Societies.

This edition´s special focus looks at the situation in the Mediterranean with regards to temporary disembarkation arrangements. Other key highlights of this Policy Update include:

  • UK-French Border Management cooperation;
  • New Schengen Information System (SIS) rules;
  • Progress on Frontex reform;
  • A closer look from the International Detention Coalition on progress towards reducing immigration detention.
