Welcome to Europe

Listed author(s):
  • Jakob von Weizsäcker

Bruegel Fellow Jakob von Weizsäcker argues that Europe needs more high-skilled migration and the debate on low-skilled migration should not be an excuse to slow this process down. Rather, the EU should use a couple of tools to encourage high-skilled migration - a skill-based points system with a ’Blue Card" granting access to its entire labour market and a ’Blue Diploma" for students graduating with a Masters degree (or equivalent) from selected universities to allow them access to the entire EU labour market. In order to manage migration from the new member states he recommends an ’External Minimum Wage".
