The Perspective of EU Common Immigration Policy
Kuzmič, Michal ; Abrhám, Josef (advisor) ; Popovová, Marie (referee)
The bachelor thesis The Perspective of EU Common Immigration Policy is primarily focused on economic and in particular work immigration to EU from third countries. The thesis lays out two questions. First question is in what way the differences between supranational and intergovernmental (or national) approach towards legal work immigration are demonstrated among the EU members and institutions. Second question seeks to determine the will of states to liberalize the entry and residence of immigrants on their labour markets. In order to answer the outlined questions I conducted an analysis of the reactions of states and European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) to the questions presented by European Commission in its Green Paper on an EU Approach to Managing Economic Migration. The findings of the analysis show that majority of states (11 of 13) prefer lower degree of harmonization whereas only 2 states along with EESC support more comprehensive harmonization. Also, 10 out of 13 states have "restrictive" or "rather restrictive" preferences towards further liberalization of immigration policy whereas the other three countries and EESC are considered to be "liberal" and "rather liberal". This outcome supports the realist theory of migration policies, which stresses the dominant role of states and their unwillingness to give up their competences to supranational institutions.
