Migration and Asylum in EU Regions: Towards a multilevel governance approach
This issue paper of the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions (CPMR) elaborates on how regional administrations in the EU could improve public governance on migration and asylum policies. The content is based on the results of an internal survey performed in 2017-2018, as well as reflections and exchanges among CPMR members.
The paper which is published in French and English summarises the knowledge and experiences gained in several CPMR regions, describing the key role and added value of regions in asylum and migration. It further presents reflections and recommendations for improving the role of European regions in promoting a better management of migration flows and building inclusive societies, and examines the challenges for EU financial instruments in the post 2020 period to contribute to achieving these goals.
An overview of the competences framework in different CPMR regions, mainly focused on the reception and accommodation of asylum-seekers, refugees and migrants, and integration policies is also included.
