EU External Relations and International Migration

This paper attempts to identify instruments of the EU’s expanded external policies in as far as they are relevant to migration that is primarily motivated by socio-economic factors.

It provides an overview of current global migratory movements, in particular towards the EU, and sketches the external aspects of the EU’s migration policy and developmental policy instruments.

The EU’s external relations and socio-economic cooperation with Central and Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean and the ACP countries are assessed and the role of migrants and minorities in the economic development of their countries of origin is considered.
