Mr Tamas provided his assessment of the EU’s External Migration Policy, while also reflecting upon the recent impacts of the coronavirus in this area. The webinar looked at how the EU’s external cooperation on migration had revolved around the Global Approach to Migration (and Mobility) since 2005 (2011) and the Migration Partnership Framework under the European Agenda on Migration since 2016. It focused in particular on the role of Migration Dialogues in the process of finding common ground with third countries and proposed new ways to accommodate the interests of partner countries within this cooperation framework. The webinar was based on the findings of the policy brief with the same title ‘Assessing the EU’s External Migration Policy’ authored by Kristof.
