EU needs “to effectively manage its external borders”

The Commission recently published a Report on the 2011 developments in the areas of immigration and asylum.  The figures of the report appear to support the Commission’s opinion that there must be a move towards a coherent migration policy that is able to respond to short- and long-run challenges. According to the EU Commissioner for Home Affairs, Cecilia Malmström, the EU needs “to effectively manage [its] external borders, to safeguard free movement within the EU, to provide genuine protection to those in need whilst at the same time providing channels for legal migration and mobility”.
The report is accompanied by a Eurobarometer on European citizens' attitudes towards cross-border mobility, migration and security.
According to the survey, 8 out of 10 Europeans agree that EU Member States should offer protection and asylum to those in need and that rules for admitting asylum seekers should be the same across the EU.
