28 May 2013
Claire Dhéret (Head of Social Europe & Well-being programme and 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. This strategy aims to address obstacles to mobility, as well as create incentives to encourage people to move.

Georgia: the next episode
15 May 2013
Dennis Sammut (Member of the EPC's Strategic Council; Director, LINKS)

Dennis Sammut argues in this Commentary that a new sense of political maturity offers the best opportunity yet for Georgia to move away from the problems of its recent past towards its declared objective of European and Euro-Atlantic integration.


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. In this Issue Paper, Yves Pascouau explores how intra-EU mobility could be improved at EU level, and proposes solutions to enhance intra-EU mobility for migrant workers already residing in the EU.

Economic governance: helping European healthcare systems to deliver better health and wealth?
2 May 2013
Annika Hedberg (Head of Sustainable Prosperity for Europe programme and Senior Policy Analyst)

As austerity measures hit the healthcare budgets, the tendency is to go for quick savings. This is short-sighted.

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.


Serving the citizens? Consular role of the EEAS grows in small steps
30 April 2013
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. Building up such a capacity for the EEAS would require additional resources, but pooling resources in this way would ease, not duplicate, the burden on member states. But if these benefits are to materialise, then a major leap is required in member states’ views on the transfer of national competences and resources to EU level, the paper concludes.
