The European Migration System and Global Justice

This report edited by Enrico Fassi and Sonia Lucarelli provides a preliminary insight into the EU’s migration policies by examining concepts and understandings as well as their actual application in a set of national cases.

Migration is at the heart of the current political debate in Europe. Moreover, the migration crisis has disclosed a number of normative and ethical issues connected to the current management of migration in the EU. This report provides a preliminary insight into the EU’s policy on migration. It looks specifically at the terms the EU chooses, the definitions it devises and the concepts and understandings it endorses in its migration policies.

In order to grasp the actual working of an emerging EU Migration System of Governance (EUMSG), the same terms, concepts and definitions are also examined with reference to a set of national cases: Italy, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Hungary, Greece and Norway.

This is the first report from the research group on migration in the ARENA-coordinated GLOBUS project, and the first issue in the new sub-series of GLOBUS reports.
