Europe@School Episode 3: European Migration Agenda

Europe@School episode three is now live. Tune in for a discussion on what has happened with migration in Europe since the migration crisis, and where we should go from here.

Nasos, Shaima and Alice, an impressive group of students and activists fill us in on the ins and outs of migration policy.

We start by discussing the European Migration Agenda, legislation that was created in 2015, the same year that the surge in migration numbers lead to the situation being declared a crisis.

Although this made some improvements for migrants and refugees and attempted to address the obvious need for a harmonized approach across the European Union, five years later coordination is still lacking, and difference in policy between member states remains a problem.

We then analyse this difference by looking at the individual migration policy of one member state – Germany’s Berlin Migration Act. The legislation facilitates skilled migrant workers entering the job market, however fails to aid some of the most vulnerable migrants like asylum seekers in the ways the need.

Racism and nationalism remains a problem across Europe. To successfully improve the situation for migrants across the union, member states must come together.
