Impact of Universities on probability of graduates finding jobs
Student dilemma: staying abroad vs. back home!
EU key dilemma and prognosis
Do EU governments want skilled immigrants to gaps in their local labour market?
Country that loses its best and brightest is less likely to develop its economy ?! -Impact of remittances on poverty in developing countries.

- Ones who have been researching and studying abroad;
ones who got competencies and think critically;
ones who can provide business ideas-
do their country need them ??? Remittances from EU countries in 2011 grew on average by less than eight percent in the corresponding period. The latest data from the German Bundesbank confirms this trend: euro remittance outflows from Germany in 2011 declined by about one per cent in comparis on with 2010. ‘‘For a successful career
in perhaps most importantly
to be surrounded by the right
people and being in the right place .’’ ‘’I think we need to be realized
abroad, but you have to try to
bring those skills home.’’ Immigration Asylum Future prospects Tampere Programme (1999-2004);
- A common EU asylum and migration policy
- A genuine European area of justice
- A Union wide fight against crime
- Stronger external action (i.e. outside the EU)
The Policy is currently under development

Do we need immigration from 3rd countries in the EU?
- uneven age structure
- shortage of highly-skilled workers
- shortage of public sector jobs
EU “blue card” A common asylum policy;
– minimum of standards

- UN Geneva Convention (1950)
- Dublin Treaty; Eurodac
- 302,000 applications for asylum in 2011 How will the common Immigration and Asylum policy develop in the future?

Integration of non-EU nationals in the host countries Migration in EU covers several dimensions:
- Labour Migration
- Student Migration
- Immigration from non-EU countries

It is important for the EU to co-operate on these issues, so that we can these the opportunities and tackle the problems that migration brings. Thank you for listening! - Lovisa Källmark
