Abstract

The President of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso, has launched a brainstorming exercise about the future policy priorities for the development of the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (AFSJ). Migration and borders will constitute two of the most relevant policies on which the next EU budget covering the AFSJ beyond 2013 will be focused.

This Policy Brief seeks to contribute to this brain-storming exercise by putting forward a package of policy recommendations covering the following three themes:

I. How to structure Justice and Home Affairs in the EU: to get the best results. II. Mastering the integration debate and comprehensively framing the citizen/foreigner/immigrant relationship. III. The utility of large-scale information systems with interoperable databases including biometric technology for the protection of people living in the EU.

Keywords: Immigration, Asylum, Borders
