Abstract

How can the responsibility for refugees be distributed more fairly – globally and within the EU? And how can we curb irregular migration while expanding legal immigration to the benefit of all concerned? The large number of refugees and other migrants who have come to Europe over the last two years has caused the EU member states that received most of the asylum seekers, to reach their capacity limits. With a view to new arrivals and their long-term integration, it is now necessary to develop new and, above all, common strategies to address the migration flows to Europe. The '2017 MEDAM Assessment Report' focuses on two core Messages: - Distribute the responsibility for refugees more equitably. - Extending legal immigration from non-EU Member States into EU member states.
