IOM's recommendations to the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the EU

IOM in recommendations released today (01-07) encouraged the new Presidency of the Council of the EU, Finland, to advance a long-term EU budget that promotes orderly, safe, regular and responsible migration as key to sustainable development in countries of destination, origin and transit.

IOM is drawing attention to the following points for the EU to consider:

  1. Advance a long-term EU budget that facilitates orderly, safe, regular and responsible migration
  2. Support a rights-based, comprehensive and balanced approach to return, readmission and reintegration
  3. Ensure that migration is a driver of development and well-being in Europe and beyond
  4. Address the complex nexus of environment, climate change and migration
