  European Migration and Diversity  

The European Migration and Diversity  (EMD) Programme provides independent expertise  on European migration and asylum policies. The EMD Programme's analyses seek to contribute to sustainable and responsible policy solutions and  are aimed at promoting e a positive and constructive dialogue on migration.
The programme follows  the policy debate taking a multidisciplinary approach,  examining both the legal and political aspects shaping European migration policies.  EMD analysts focus, amongst other topics, on the reform of the Common European Asylum System; the management of the EU’s external borders; cooperation with countries of origin and transit; the integration of beneficiaries of international protection into host societies; the links between migration and populism; the development of resettlement and legal pathways; and the EU's free movement acquis. The EMD team benefits from a strong network of academics, NGO representatives and policymakers, who contribute regularly to publications and policy events.
