The migration crisis [What Think Tanks are thinking]

Written by Marcin Grajewski,

A March agreement between the European Union and Turkey seems to have eased the pressure from previously largely uncontrolled mass migration to the EU via the Turkish shores. However, the accord runs the risk of unravelling due to disagreements on key points, for example on offering Turks visa-free travel to the EU or on modifying anti-terrorist laws in Turkey. Under the deal, Turkey agreed to take back migrants who cross to Greece illegally and who didn’t apply for asylum or whose asylum claim was found inadmissible.

This note offers links to a series of recent commentaries and studies on migration from major international think tanks and research institutes. More papers on the same topic can be found in a previous edition of ‘What Think Tanks are thinking’, published in March. Recent studies on the Schengen area can be found in another edition of ‘What Think Tanks are thinking’.
