Immigration and the Euro-Mediterranean Area: Keys to Policy and Trends

Abstract

The rationale behind this paper is that there is a need to review established migration policies, given current trends in migration to Europe. This paper examines the Mediterranean area as a source and destination of human movements; the difficult coexistence between policies to control migration and the need for labour; the challenge of establishing national and Community policies; and lastly, proper Euro-Mediterranean migration policy issues.
