[FINAL REPORT] Shared Challenges and Opportunities for EU and US Immigration Policymakers [2 November 2011]
[full-text, 30 pages]
Authors Philippe Fargues, Demetrios G. Papademetriou, Giambattista Salinari, and Madeleine Sumption summarize and reflect upon the key findings of the project’s research papers and policy briefs. The report highlights the lessons to be learned from both similar and divergent experiences on either side of the Atlantic, sketching opportunities for future reform, as well as ways in which the European Union and the United States could improve their cooperative relationship.
NOTE: Over the past nine months, the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) has released the results of a comparative research partnership with the European University Institute (EUI) aimed at identifying ways in which Europe and the United States can address major immigration challenges facing policymakers on both sides of the Atlantic.
Through the “US and EU Immigration Systems” project, MPI and EUI have published 39 reports and policy briefs that focus on developments in Europe and the United States in eight key areas – employment, economic growth, human rights, security, immigrant integration, demographics, development, and cooperation with immigrant-sending countries. The research partnership was funded through a grant from the European Commission as part of its series of Pilot Projects on “Transatlantic Methods for Handling Global Challenges.”
The 21 reports and policy briefs produced by MPI as part of this project are available at:
