EU neighbourhood migration report 2013
The means of communication revolution, virtual as well as physical, is continually making the world smaller and people more mobile and more interconnected. Yet international migration has not become truly global. When people leave their familiar environment to establish themselves in another country, distance continues to matter to them. The closer to home they end up the better, as far as they are concerned. Indeed, a large part of international migration takes place within rather than between geographic regions. This statement of fact is at the base of the present report dedicated to... migration in the EU neighbourhood. What are the levels and trends of migration in countries at the external border of the European Union (EU) and how much of this migration is destined for, and how much originates in the EU? How do States in the EU neighbourhood legislate on immigration and emigration and how does outward and inward migration impact their policymaking? These are the main questions that this report addresses.
