The European Commission’s Role in strengthening migration as a development enabler

The European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) has issued an article providing proposals to the new European Commission College on how to improve migration policies and link them to development. As the post-2015 development agenda is being negotiated, the European Commission and EU member states have a key role to play in protecting migrant’s rights and avoiding more tragic shipwrecks on European coasts. Suggestions include, amongst others, concluding new partnerships and increasing synergies between the EU’s internal and external policies, addressing the ‘root causes’ of irregular migration and cooperating more closely to create innovative migration mechanisms.
