EPIM Policy Update November 2014

EPIM Policy Update November 2014

The November 2014 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.

This edition’s special focus is dedicated to the new Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, Dimitris Avramopoulos.

Other key highlights of this Policy Update include:

  • the Justice and Home Affairs Council meeting in Luxembourg on 9 and 10 October;
  • the launch of the Triton operation (FRONTEX Plus);
  • the joint police operation Mos Maiorum;
  • the EU-Turkey readmission agreement;
  • the joint EU-OECD report “Matching economic migration with labour market needs”;
  • and upcoming events at EU level.
