The Brief outlines the content and context of the Global Compact for Migration, which is expected to be signed in Marrakesh on 11-12 December 2018. It argues that the general principles, objectives and guidelines stipulated in this non-binding document mostly reflect the legal obligations and political aspirations incumbent upon the European Union and its Member States; and it contrasts their apparent acceptance there with the political difficulties encountered in the attempt to review and upgrade EU Asylum and Migration System so as to reflect the realities in the field and comply with the fundamental constitutional principles of the European project.
