The March 2024 edition of the IRMO Brief, authored by Snježana Gregurović, deals with the migration and integration of migrants in the European Union. Over the past decade, the EU countries have experienced a rising influx of migrants, including persons seeking international protection, refugees and economic migrants. Coping with migration pressure is a complex challenge, requiring cooperation and coordinated efforts among EU member states. This includes ensuring effective border control, managing asylum processes, and dealing with the social, economic and political implications of migration. However, even after the Stockholm Program of 2009 enacted for the period 2010-2014, the EU has been unable to provide a solution for establishing a common asylum procedure and solidarity mechanisms. The author also analyses how the New Pact on Migration and Asylum, introduced in 2020, and the agreement to reform regulations for asylum and migration adopted in 2023, amend the shortcomings of the Dublin Regulation.
