Migration is about crossing national borders. By definition, it involves different countries, their governments, communities and individual citizens. The question is how to manage migration so that the interests of all are best served, in a way that is humane, fair and transparent.

This publication provides a much needed progressive liberal response to this question. It gives a broad outlook on major migration challenges and sets out a clear foundation of values on which to base migration policy.

Translating liberal values to actual policy solutions makes this publication an important contribution to current migration debates in Europe. It shows how European countries could act on something that touches everyone.
