Research Project

Migration and refugee flows into the EU: recent trends, explanatory factors and policies to address their economic root causes

My research will first provide a fresh description of recent trends in migration/refugee flows into the EU and will discuss potential future trends. It will then examine the EU’s external migration and refugee policies. I will focus on the economic and financial instruments the EU is using to address the root causes of migration, i.e. to stem migration flows or affect their composition (financial assistance, use of trade preferences to encourage labour market integration of refugees in countries of first asylum, collaboration with third countries in the context of the Migration Partnerships on migration). Are the strategy and instruments appropriate? And if not, how can they be made more effective?
