Migration Policy Developments

Migration policy developments in 2009 and 2010 were partly affected by the economic downturn, with restrictive measures adopted in some OECD countries with respect to labour migration. Family and humanitarian policies, as well as border controls, were also tightened in the period under review, albeit for different reasons. In parallel, countries enhanced their integration efforts for those migrants already in the country.
