Lords hear from Representatives from Open Europe

09 July 2012

Mats Persson, Director and Stephen Booth, Research Director at Open Europe will appear before the Lords EU Home Affairs, Health and Education  Sub-Committee on Wednesday 11 July, to give their views on the EU’s Global Approach to Migration and Mobility (GAMM). 

Questions the Committee are likely to put to Mr Persson and Mr Booth include:

  • What is your view on how the Global Approach to Migration has operated to date, and do you think it is an effective strategy?
  • Do you believe that the UK’s “pick-and-mix”  approach to cooperation in EU asylum policy has undermined our influence on EU policy developments in this area?
  • Do you think that Sweden’s relatively open immigration policy provides an example for the UK to follow?
  • How could the effectiveness of the Global Approach be improved and what do you think of the Commission’s proposals in its most recent Communication on the subject?


The evidence session will take place on Wednesday 11 July at 11.30am in Committee Room 3.
