Resolution adopted by the plenary of the European Parliament on 20 May 2021, concerning the issues of legal labour migration into the European Union (EU).
The report calls for more legal options for migrant workers coming to the EU. It argues that an EU framework for legal migration would encourage more orderly migration, attract much-needed workers, undermine smugglers and traffickers, and ease integration. This document also highlights that legal migration has barely been part of the EU's migration policy since 2015 and underlines that the New Pact on Migration and Asylum does not include any specific proposals in this area. The text also stresses the role of remittances and the benefits that safe, regular and orderly migration have for both sending and receiving countries.
The Resolution was adopted by the plenary of the European Parliament on 20 May 2021, with 495 to 163 and 32 abstentions.
