Migration policy: Council agrees partial negotiating position on return directive

The EU is working to make the rules for returning irregular migrants more effectiveToday the Council agreed on a partial negotiating position on the revised return directive. This position covers all aspects of the proposed revision apart from the provisions on the border procedure for returns. This is because the scope of this procedure is defined by the Asylum Procedure Regulation, which is currently under discussion.

Improving the effectiveness of returns is a fundamental part of a comprehensive migration policy. It is the best way to break the business model of smugglers and show that putting your life in their hands is not a ticket to Europe.
