This report has been produced in the framework of the strategic partnership between the European Council for Refugees and Exiles (ECRE) and the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).
It builds on the findings of 'Follow the Money: report on the use of AMIF funding at the national level', published by the strategic partnership in early 2018, which critically examined the programming of national Asylum Migration & Integration Fund (AMIF) resources by European Union Member States during the 2014-17 period. It specifically follows up on the study's third specific objective of providing input in order to assist the European Commission, Member States and partners in the development of European asylum, migration and integration funding instruments post-2020.
This document analyses selected new legislative and budgetary proposals published by the European Commission within the framework of the proposed Multiannual Financial Framework for 2021-27. It focuses on those proposals relevant to current AMIF beneficiaries and which have been proposed to be delivered by Member States via 'shared management' arrangements (National Programmes).
