Our new deputy director, Viktor Daněk, commented on the newly published draft of the EU migration reform which was approved during the foreign ministers' summit in Spain.
"This reform is really the last piece in the puzzle of the EU's overall migration and asylum policy, which has been dragging on since the 2015 crisis. Only now it seems that the stalled negotiations have been broken and it seems that there is finally a consensus among EU states. "
