Immigration Policy for Circular Migration (2010:4)


Circular migration has become a central concept for the future EU migration policy, implying that migrants should be encouraged to move repeatedly between the country of origin and the host country. In this SIEPS report, the author investigates the relevant literature and discusses problems that might arise when forming a migration policy that promotes movement. This is an English translation of a previously presented report in Swedish.

The report is part of the research project Internal and external dimensions of a common asylum and migration policy and was presented at the seminar Immigration Policy for Circular Migration.
