Europe as a successful model? Consequences and challenges for Germany posed by free movement within the EU.

Annual Report 2013 with Migration Barometer.

April 2013

The Annual Report focuses on internal EU migration. Germany has become a magnet for skilled migrants from the EU and benefits from the new upsurge in mobility in the EU. Even though freedom of movement in the EU has proven successful, there are also, however, obstacles to migration that contribute to an overall low level of internal migration. As a result, the overall conditions for mobility have to be further improved. The Expert Council recommends a National Migration Action Plan for Germany.
