Chapter Summary

This chapter outlines the main conclusions of this book. It first compares the supposed effects of readmission agreements with some of the findings of this book, and makes suggestions for further research on this issue. Readmission agreements may be expected to limit but not eliminate return problems, and do not necessarily lead third countries to increase migration control on their territories. The chapter then considers the limited success of the common readmission policy, and reflects upon its further development. The common readmission policy is relatively unsuccessful yet has a questionable impact on other European Union (EU) policy fields, including EU external relations. Finally, the chapter discusses the relationship between Community readmission agreements and international refugee protection.

Keywords: common readmission policy; community readmission agreements; EU external relations; European Union (EU) policy; international refugee protection; third countries
