Description for Bookstore
Reviews current and expected migration trends in Central and Eastern Europe. Considers how EU enlargement eastwards is likely to affect international migration in Europe and also examines how much progress the Central and Eastern European countries have made in aligning their migration legislation and migration policies with EU practice.
Main Description
Since the fall of the Berlin Wall the countries of Central and Eastern Europe have had to deal with a completely new set of legislative and policy challenges relating to migration. This book reviews current and expected migration trends in Central and Eastern Europe, including trends in labour migration, transit migration, trafficking and migrant smuggling. It considers how EU enlargement eastwards is likely to affect international migration in Europe. It also examines how much progress the Central and Eastern European countries have made in aligning their migration legislation and migration policies with EU practice. The book concludes that virtually all the candidate countries appear to be on track as far as legislative developments are concerned, but few countries have seriously and systematically examined the question of what kind of migration policy they wish to develop in the future.
