Abstract EU political discourse insists on the need to integrate the facilitation of legal migration within the cooperation with third countries. However, Member States’ reticence makes this element of the “Global Approach to Migration and Mobility” to be the least developed in practice. This article explores whether it is legally possible for the EU to develop an external action on legal migration and integration. For that purpose, the existence and nature of EU external competences on these fields will be examined. After identifying certain difficulties for the EU in exercising those external competences, possible alternatives for surmounting them will be suggested, such as exploiting the instrument of association, and strengthening coordination between the EU’s and Member States’ external action making the most of mobility partnerships.
