Migration: Commission note ahead of the June European Council

The Commission published a note ahead of the European Council.

The note provides an overview of the work over the past 3 years on the European Agenda on Migration proposed by the Juncker Commission in May 2015, which has guided the advances in European migration policy that were needed to respond to the substantial challenges faced.

The note also looks forward and points to areas Leaders meeting at the European Council could focus on to take the very necessary debate on migration forward.

The Commission believes there are several areas where the EU and its Member States can make significant progress – areas in which we are far more united than we are divided, and where coordinated European action can make a world of difference.

Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Commissioner, Dimitris Avramopoulos said: “Migration is again making headline news. I feel encouraged by this because it means there is growing political will to act and agree on a number of important issues that will define our future migration policy. We have already come a long way from where we were just three years ago. Leaders should now commit to finding agreement on all components of a strengthened Common European Asylum System before the end of the year. I am convinced it is possible. It is a moment of responsibility in order to uphold and safeguard Schengen.”
