Launch Event Migration 03.07

Effective migration partnerships with third countries are a declared goal of both the European Union and the German government. Views diverge, however, on what good migration cooperation looks like and which strategies are useful toward different partner countries. In particular, the use of incentives – positive and negative – by the EU and its member states to reach their migration goals is heatedly debated in politics and academia alike. Using carrots and sticks, also known as conditionality, is either framed as necessary and legitimate, or as post-colonial and counterproductive.

The upcoming DGAP Report “Conditionality in Migration Cooperation: Beyond Carrots, Sticks, and Delusions” draws on confidential interviews with practitioners to reconstruct how the EU and its member states have used levers in the past and what effects this use has had. Considering the ongoing expansion of the EU’s conditionality toolbox, the report outlines the role that conditionality should play in the future to make migration cooperation more realistic and effective.

At this event, participants will engage with Germany’s Special Commissioner for Migration Agreements and discuss the report’s findings and recommendations on migration cooperation.
