Chapter Summary

Integration has become part of EU immigration policy and references to integration requirements appear in different documents adopted by the EU. This chapter focuses on the EU role in co-ordinating or managing normative understanding of integration as far as its competences allow. It looks at the limits set by EU law on application of integration measures and conditions. Implementation and application of directives are subject to CJEU review and might entail legal consequences for national integration policies. This does not exclude the question whether integration requirements fit well in the EU legal system. To provide answers, directives are analyzed from the perspective of the proportionality test from the EU standpoint, i.e., third-country nationals’ statuses are created by the EU. The analysis shows that the Member States' desire to keep control over the immigration sphere is strongly present.
