EU Policy Brief No. 2: The new European Agenda on Migration: what can be learnt from recent academic research?
This EU Policy Brief overviews the recent accumulated knowledge relating to each one of the three objectives presented by the European Commission in the European Agenda on Migration. The aim is to provide research insights on both their relevance and the possible ways of achieving them. It starts with a synthesis of what is known about the global migration scenario for the future and about the attractiveness of Europe as compared to other regions. It then draws upon the burgeoning literature on remittances to discuss ways of channelling them towards more productive use in migrant source countries. It ends with a discussion on the links between migrants’ integration and rights and development.
