Social security coordination for third country migrants coming from third countries to the EU is scattered between EU instruments and national instruments. On the one hand, the EU has concluded agreements with third countries, e.g. Turkey, which includes provisions on social security coordination. The EU has also adopted unilateral measures such as EU Directives on migration, e.g. the Blue Card Directive, which provide for equal treatment in the field of social security. On the other hand, Member States conclude bilateral agreements on social security coordination with third countries. With the purpose of solving this fragmented situation, this paper aims at discussing what a common EU approach to social security coordination with third countries could encompass. It focuses on the social security coordination to be developed with India by using a comparative legal analysis of the EU instruments as well as the Member States’ bilateral agreements with India.
