The EU’s migrant strategy: a welcome new impetus

The publication of the Commission’s agenda on migration comes at a difficult time in humanitarian and political terms. In this context, the Juncker Commission faced a sensitive challenge because it needed to act quickly but had only limited room for manoeuvre. This Viewpoint by António Vitorino and Yves Pascouau underlines the positive aspects of the new agenda as far as solidarity and long-term vision are concerned.

António Vitorino is Director General of the International Organisation for Migration, he formally worked as an EU Commissioner.

Dr. Yves Pascouau is CEO of eumigrationlaw.eu, he formally worked for the European Policy Centre.
