Chapter 6: Integration

Migration / BOOK
Daniel Thym

Date: 11/12/2019

This chapter, jointly prepared by Ilke Adam and Daniel Thym, critically reviews the progress made towards a “more vigorous integration policy”, as called for by the original Tampere conclusions.3 They provide a comprehensive series of recommendations, including focusing on integration as ‘equality’ in order to move towards a better recognition of the obligations of society as a whole. They also call for a better implementation of the integration clauses within the EU’s legal migration acquis, and they highlight the importance of ensuring that European Social Fund Plus funds are earmarked for projects which effectively benefit immigrants. 

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.
