The OECD series Recruiting Immigrant Workers comprises country studies of labour migration policies. Each volume analyses whether migration policy is being used effectively and efficiently to help meet labour needs, without adverse effects on labour markets. It focuses mainly on regulated labour migration movements over which policy has immediate and direct oversight. This particular volume looks at the efficiency of European Union instruments for managing labour migration.


Recommendations for EU labour migration policy

This chapter concludes the report with some policy recommendations. It opens with general and systemic recommendations on the EU-level migration framework, types of migration and categories of migrant. It provides recommendations on sector-based policy approaches and how to build on current legislation, including possible changes in the overall legislative approach and the creation of a space for pilot schemes. It provides specific recommendations to improve the EU Blue Card. The chapter then makes recommendations for clarifying and simplifying procedures; improving information, communication and awarenessraising; and positioning the EU as a labour migration destination. Finally, it discusses how to involve more EU Member States and strengthen co-operation with third countries.
