EU immigration policy: act now before it is too late
20 June 2013
Yves Pascouau (Senior Adviser to EPC on migration and mobility policies)

EU member states are making negotiations regarding EU labour migration rules very difficult.

Making progress towards the completion of the Single European Labour Market
28 May 2013
Claire Dhéret (Head of Programme ‘Social Europe & Well-being’ & Senior Policy Analyst), Alex Lazarowicz (External authors), Francesco Nicoli (Former Programme Assistant at the EPC), Yves Pascouau (Senior Adviser to EPC on migration and mobility policies) and Fabian Zuleeg (Chief Executive and Chief Economist)

In this Issue Paper, the authors propose an ambitious and comprehensive strategy towards labour mobility.

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.

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.

25 April 2013
Yves Pascouau (Senior Adviser to EPC on migration and mobility policies)
