The European Commission recently released information on the progress of the European Agenda on Migration and Security, including a renewed European Union Action Plan on Return and a call for quicker implementation of commitments made through the agenda.
At the recent Malta Summit, member states
highlighted the challenges posed by the EU return policy, triggering a renewed
plan and the recent release of several recommendations to Member States on the
subject. At the EU level, the commission is proposing increased financial
support for return efforts and improved information exchanges on return
enforcement, among other measures. Some of the recommendations proposed for
member states include improved coordination and shortened appeals deadlines to
make the process more efficient.
The European Commission also called on member states to increase
the rate of relocation and make good on commitments for the European Border and
Coast Guard Agency in the run up to the European Council March 9-10. The commission reported on progress to the Migration Partnership Framework and
implementation actions taken along the Central Mediterranean route, as well as
on the Partnership Framework with third countries, in which progress has been made
in Ethiopia, Niger, Nigeria, Mali and Senegal.
The commission presented its fifth
progress report on the Security Union, which urges adoption of proposals like
the Terrorism Directive an Firearms Directive.
