Chapter Summary

Ten years after the Tampere European Council, the EU is far from having a comprehensive labour migration policy. Following the failure and withdrawal of the Commission's 2001 proposal on a Directive for economic migration, the negotiation process of four 'sectoral' Directives and a framework Directive on labour migration has been slow. The only measure enacted so far is Directive 2009/50/EC on highly qualified employment, whereas a framework Directive on a single permit and on a common set of rights has been proposed by the Commission. This chapter explains the two Directives that have been proposed and adopted. While the UK and Denmark have once again opted out, the remaining Member States only transpose the provisions of Directive 2009/50/EC into national law by 19 June 2011. Consequently, the provisions of the two Community instruments will be compared to the applicable national legislation on labour migration in the five Member State.
