E-consultation on how to enhance EU migration and development policy

The European Commission (EC) is developing proposals on how to enhance the external dimension of the EU's migration policy ('The EU Global Approach to Migration'), to better meet the policy objectives and interests of the European Union (EU), its partner countries and all migrants concerned. This package of proposals will include a specific focus on the Migration and Development dimension of the EU migration policy. It is envisaged that the proposals will argue that the traditional migration and development agenda should be broadened to offer a migrant-centred approach. As such, the EC considers it is important to examine migration and development policy using the following lenses and identifying the benefits which migration brings for each, together with the challenges and possible solutions: individual migrant; migrant’s family/household; countries and local communities of origin; and countries of destination. It is hoped this will enable policy makers to enhance the human and social dimension of migration and development policies. A migrant-centred approach might also be strengthened by increasing the involvement of migrant groups, research institutes, media and other non-state actors in both the development and implementation of migration and development policy. Finally, given that the largest movement of migrants occurs between countries located in the global South (so called South-South migration), the contribution of these migrants to the development of their countries of origin should be recognised and supported. The European Commission (EC) is developing proposals on how to enhance the external dimension of the EU's migration policy ('The EU Global Approach to Migration'), to better meet the policy objectives and interests of the European Union (EU), its partner countries and all migrants concerned. This package of proposals will include a specific focus on the Migration and Development dimension of the EU migration policy.
