EU Migration Policies and External Relations

(p.188) 9 EU Migration Policies and External Relations
Adjusting to a World in Motion

This chapter analyses the link between the European Union’s external relations and its migration policy. It explains how this link between the two developed in the 1990s, with the European Commission and the European Council gradually shaping the external dimension of the EU’s migration policy. Subsequently, it became evident that a comprehensive and balanced approach to deal effectively with migration and asylum issues in cooperation with countries of origin and countries of transit was indispensable for EU migration policy. In 2005, with this in mind, the EU Heads of State and Government adopted the EU’s Global Approach to Migration and Mobility, which is said to be comprehensive, balanced, and in line with the European Union’s other external policies. However, on closer inspection, the Global Approach raises fundamental questions in view of its content, its orientation, and its territorial application.
