ZEI follows policy progress in the ten areas which have priority for EU institutions over the period 2014-2019:


Commission Priority: Towards a New Policy on Migration



  • Ensuring that all EU countries apply asylum rules in the same manner, by fully implementing the Common European Asylum System (CEAS)

  • Enforcing EU laws penalising human traffickers vigorously

  • Protecting our external borders better by increasing the budget of the European border agency Frontex.

  • Cooperating more closely with non EU countries to smooth repatriation of irregular migrants

  • Promoting the legal migration of persons with skills needed in Europe, through a review of the 'Blue Card' legislation
