Alternatives to asylum? Legal migration channels to Germany for thirdcountry nationals not in need of protection
Study | December 2018
Low- and medium-skilled third-country nationals still have very few legal mobility options. The study analyses both the scope of and framework conditions for existing entry channels to Germany for this group of migrants and it outlines current cooperation mechanisms with countries of origin. It also makes recommendations for action for the relevant actors in politics and administration when it comes to designing future legal migration options for work and training and examines the instruments available for controlling these processes.
