Chapter 2: EU Agencies

Migration / BOOK
Evangelia (Lilian) Tsourdi

Date: 11/12/2019

Evangelia (Lilian) Tsourdi evaluates the current situation of the EU agencies and looks especially at the increased importance of EU agencies in the areas of migration and asylum. She assesses the agencies’ governance structures and provides recommendations for adequate fundamental rights oversight and enhanced independence. Tsourdi also reflects on whether, and how, increased agency interventions are a way to strengthen EU-wide solidarity on migration. 

This chapter is part of the publication ‘From Tampere 20 to Tampere 2.0: Towards a new European consensus on migration’, which takes stock of the EU’s migration and asylum policies 20 years after the historic 1999 Tampere European Council conclusions. It argues that solidarity and the implementation of common policies are the two building blocks for a new European consensus on migration. The book is the final result of a year-long research project conducted by the European Policy Centre together with Odysseus Academic Network, European Migration Network Finland and the Friedrich Naumann Foundation.
