Policy briefing No. 2 "New Migrations and the challenges of integration in Europe, Australia and New Zealand"

Europe and Australasia are traditional receiving regions of migration and refugees. Countries in both continents have developed diverse policy measures to meet the challenges arising from this and integrate arriving people into their respective societies. Thus, an exchange between the two regions to learn from each other’s experiences can bring about new approaches to this phenomenon. This policy briefing provides a summary of an expert conference that addressed recent developments regarding refugees and temporary migrants, immediate actions to foster integration and long-term strategies.

Policy Briefing No. 1 “Fostering Europe-Asia Cooperation in Addressing Irregular Migration and Refugee Movements”


Refugee movements and irregular migration are no new phenomena to Asia and Europe, but have shaped them for decades. Irregular migration patterns in both regions show certain similarities and the causes for leaving the respective home countries are also comparable. The direct linkages between the two regions concerning this challenge are strong. Despite these connections, collaboration has been limited. Thus, it is necessary to foster an exchange between both sides to address these matters jointly.

Europe - Surging Forward

Has Europe failed? If one reads some of the critical comments of recent years, this impression may actually arise. Does all this together mean that the project of ever closer European Union is unrealistic, and that EU member states should instead rely more on national forces again and seek to step away from integration into common European structures and institutions? For this issue of Panorama: Insights into Asian and European Affairs, we have asked authors from different European countries to analyze the European integration and the European Union from their points of view.
