Immigration was a key priority of the French EU Presidency in 2008. In its attempt to provide EU Member States and institutions with a framework for the future of European migration policies, the French government found strong support from other EU countries, particularly the UK. The result took the form of a 'European Pact on Immigration and Asylum' that was accepted by the EU Council on October 16, 2008.

The report is organised in two parts. In the first part, Christophe Bertossi tries to understand the extent to which the Pact can be considered as a step forward in the construction of a common European migration policy. The second part is based on the proceedings of the two Anglo-French migration policy seminars.
