Europe has finally started to debate migration. A timely debate indeed , as many migrants have over the last 30 years entered the European Un ion without the cover of a proper and well-defined policy. Many argume nts are being put forward in this respect: Europe faces a shortage of labour, not enough children are being born, future pension bills can n ot be met, globalization should result in accepting aliens, and so on. Yet, hardly any effort has been undertaken to put all such arguments into their proper context and to list what Europe and the European Uni on in particular have already agreed upon. This Handbook describes an d provides the foundation for a common European Migration Policy and s hould be considered an extremely useful tool, if not indispendable for the executive, students, policy makers, the media and all others inte rested in this exceedingly important topic.
