Date of news: 30 November 2022
On 1 December2022 Lilian Tsourdi and Tesseltje de Lange presented their Odysseus Network Report (co-authored with Elspeth Guild, Ulrike Brandl and others): "The EU legal migration package. Towards a rights-based approach to attracting skills and talent to the EU" to the EP LIBE Committee. This study assesses the European Commission’s 2022 legal migration package on effectiveness, efficiency, legal and practical coherence, and fundamental rights compliance. The study finds that a more coherent and ambitious rights-based legal migration agenda is warranted. In the EU struggle for skilled and talented third-country national workers, social obligations, climate change, and sustainable growth cannot be disregarded.
