Contributions on economic migration
The European Commission has adopted a green paper on "An EU approach to managing economic migration". Its aim is to stimulate a public debate with civil society at large, the social partners and the other EU institutions on the need to develop a comprehensive EU strategy on this issue. The Commission will organise a hearing in June 2005 and incorporate the findings of this debate in a policy plan on legal migration for the end of 2005.
In reply to this Green Paper, the Commission received more than 120 written contributions.
