Chapter Summary

This chapter explains how the European Union (EU) became involved in migration regulation. It begins by sketching the reasons that made the engagement of the EU in migration issues inevitable. The chapter divides the historical analysis into four different periods. The first one covers the years 1957-1999. During that period, there was little activity by the Community on migration issues and everything was dealt with by the Member States acting independently or at an intergovernmental level. The years 1999-2004 constitute the second period of analysis. By the end of 2004, the Hague Programme, which replaced the Tampere Programme, was adopted, introducing new priorities and a legislative timetable for the period 2005-2009. The chapter concludes by highlighting the innovations enshrined in the Treaty of Lisbon and the Stockholm Programme, which replaced the Hague Programme, and which marked the beginning of a new period for the years 2010-2014.
