Ending at the end of 2014, the Stockholm Programme 2009-2014 closes a period of three five-year programmes (Tampere 1999-2004 and The Hague 2004-2009) defining EU’s strategic orientations in the fields of justice, liberty and security, including asylum and immigration.

While the 26-27 June 2014 European Council will set the new strategic guidelines for the period 2014-2020, what is at stake in the field of border control and asylum?

In this context, the Policy Paper of Corinne Balleix presents:

1. A state of play of what has been implemented at the EU level in the fields of border control and right of asylum
2. An assessment of solidarity mechanisms between Member states
3. Recommendations to meet the challenges of the post-Stockholm programme: reconciling the increasing externalisation of the EU migration policy and the preservation of the right of asylum.
