Chapter Summary

Having presented the main legislative developments regarding migration law as well as the role of, and interaction among, the key policy actors, this chapter draws an overall critical analysis of Europe's nascent migration law and policy. It is centred around two main axes: first, an overview of the general features and framework of policy-making with regard to migration; and, second a critical analysis of the content and quality of Europe's migration policy, in particular in the post-Amsterdam era. Taking into account that the Treaty of Amsterdam constitutes a major turning point for European migration policy, the chapter examines in depth the extent and the meaning of the changes resulting from Amsterdam. It discusses the content and quality of the emerging Community migration policy. The annual reports of human rights implementation by Member States show that problems with regard to the respect of human rights within the EU are a reality.

Keywords: Community migration policy; European migration policy; human rights; Member States; nascent migration law; policy-making; post-Amsterdam era; Treaty of Amsterdam
