In a joint letter sent to the Irish presidency, four Ministers launched a violent attack against freedom of movement of EU citizens.

Kristi Raik (External authors)

In the longer term, there is a strong economic rationale for assigning EU Delegations with consular assistance tasks, argues Kristi Raik in this Policy Brief.

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

27 March 2013
Jiang Shixue (External authors)

The change of China’s political leadership is unlikely to herald major policy changes in the domestic or foreign arenas, and Beijing’s policy towards the EU will also generally be unchanged, writes Jiang Shixue in this Commentary.
