POLICY PAPER | The New Pact on Migration and Asylum and the war in Ukraine: time for a paradigm shift?

Christian Kvorning Lassen, deputy director and head of research at the EUROPEUM, writes in his policy paper about the new pact on migration and asylum. In his article, he reminds that migration remains highly politicized.

"Labor shortages and demographic deficits are growing issues that migration can mitigate. As a result, the EU’s approach to migration remains schizophrenic, torn between wanting to attract “the right migrants” while simultaneously trying to generate political capital by painting migration as a threat being met with ever-increasing punitive measures."
