Breaking the gridlock? Online Debate between Margaritis Schinas and Karoline Edtstadler, moderated by Michael Spindelegger
Start: 6 October


Breaking the gridlock? Commission Vice President Margaritis Schinas & Austria's Europe Minister Karoline Edtstadler debate Europe’s New #EUMigration Pact with ICMPD Director General Michael Spindelegger


For some observers, the New Pact on Migration and Asylum — with proposals on mandatory screening of migrants at the border and stepping up the return of failed asylum seekers — goes too far. Others feel such measures are the minimum necessary and, if they cannot work, the very survival of the Schengen area may be at stake. Others still want to focus on stepping up the Union’s external engagement with third countries and promising ideas such as the Commission’s proposed talent partnerships.

With months of difficult negotiations and public debate ahead, ICMPD Director General, Michael Spindelegger invites you to a virtual discussion with European Commission Vice President Margaritis Schinas and Austria’s Europe minister, Karoline Edtstadler on the future of EU migration policy.
