Policy Brief

14/12/2022

This Policy Brief summarises the main findings of an international roundtable to discuss the future of the European Union’s asylum policies after the war in Ukraine. The workshop’s objective was to promote an essential and timely debate on the political pathways through which the EU can shape its asylum and migration policies, avoiding previous imbalances and injustice.

Thanks also to a preliminary background paper, ‘War in Ukraine, refugees, inclusion and human mobility: The challenges for a progressive European Union policy‘ by Andrea Stocchiero, the high-level debate underlined different critical aspects and agreed upon some relevant recommendations in order to enrich a progressive policy agenda regarding the EU migration and asylum policies in the medium and long term.

Analysing initial responses to the Ukraine refugee influx following Russia’s brutal invasion and taking stock of the evolution of the situation, this policy brief goes over current and potential policy responses and solutions to better manage the reception of refugees in the European Union.

The roundtable took place in Como, Italy, from 7 to 8 October 2022. It was organised by FEPS, Friedrich Ebert Foundation Italian Office, Fondation Jean-Jaurès and Centro Studi di Politica Internazionale (CeSPI), in conjunction with the German-Italian Centre for the European Dialogue, Villa Vigoni.
