Chapter 10: Return and readmission

Migration / BOOK

Date: 11/12/2019

The chapter on return and readmission highlights the need for adequate fundamental rights standards in return procedures in order to safeguard not only returnees’ rights but also the effectiveness and overall credibility of the EU’s return policies. A series of recommendations are provided including, amongst others, the need to uphold the primacy of voluntary departure and the requirement of strengthening the EU and national legal frameworks that apply to non-removable returnees. 

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.
