EPIM Policy Update June 2014

EPIM Policy Update June 2014

The second 2014 and first short edition of the EPC Policy Update specifically prepared for organisations engaged in EPIM is now available online.

EPIM has commissioned the European Policy Centre, a Brussels-based think tank, to produce regular EPC Policy Updates. These focussed analyses have the aim of supporting the advocacy work being done by organisations engaged in EPIM by providing information on a range of recent EU-level policy-making, legislation and jurisprudence relevant to EPIM’s three focus areas:

(1) Asylum seekers;
(2) Undocumented Migrants; and
(3) Equality, integration and social inclusion of vulnerable migrants.

Due to high demand, the Policy Update will be produced more frequently and therefore in a shorter version from this edition onwards.

Key highlights of this Policy Update include:

  • the Post-Stockholm process,
  • the European Parliament’s adoption of the Intra-Corporate Transferees Directive,
  • latest European Court of Justice (ECJ) case law,
  • the Lampedusa tragedy – Mediterranean task force,
  • Syrian asylum seekers in the European Union,
  • the fifth European Commission annual report on immigration and asylum,
  • special focus: Immigration and freedom of movement before and after the EP elections.
