Chapter 3: Migration and development

Migration / BOOK
Vincent Chetail

Date: 11/12/2019

Vincent Chetail looks at the migration-development nexus. He highlights that the relations between migration and development are much more complex and subtle than commonly assumed. While the two intersect, development is not an answer to migration and vice versa. The recommendations advanced focus, instead, on how to enhance coherence between the EU’s migration and development policies, or how to better identify and integrate local needs in the elaboration of migration-development partnerships. 

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.
