Intra-EU mobility: the 'second building block' of EU labour migration policy
6 May 2013
Yves Pascouau (Senior Adviser to EPC on migration and mobility policies)

Since 1999, EU labour migration has remained a field in which member states have proven to be reluctant to adopt common rules, thus neglecting to develop a sound and comprehensive EU labour migration policy. In this Issue Paper, Yves Pascouau explores how intra-EU mobility could be improved at EU level, and proposes solutions to enhance intra-EU mobility for migrant workers already residing in the EU.

Strong attack against the freedom of movement of EU citizens: turning back the clock
30 April 2013
Yves Pascouau (Senior Adviser to EPC on migration and mobility policies)

In a joint letter sent to the Irish presidency, four Ministers launched a violent attack against freedom of movement of EU citizens. However, in this Commentary, Yves Pascouau argues that the letter goes further than the usual and recurrent calls for a revision of rules governing freedom of movement of EU citizens, and uses concepts and words normally used in the field of immigration, thereby enabling EU citizens to be compared and treated as foreigners.

27 June 2012
Yves Pascouau (Senior Adviser to EPC on migration and mobility policies)

The Schengen evaluation mechanism and the legal basis problem: breaking the deadlock
31 January 2012
Yves Pascouau (Senior Adviser to EPC on migration and mobility policies)

One of the immediate effects of the Arab Spring was the launch of intense discussions about 'Schengen governance'. While the package of proposals presented by the European Commission has opened a new debate regarding the possibility of reintroducing internal border checks, it has revived an 'old' proposal to make evaluating the implementation of Schengen rules more efficient. In this Policy Brief, Yves Pascouau proposes some solutions in order to move forward.
