DGs - Migration and Home Affairs - What we do - Policies - European Agenda on Migration Why a new European Agenda on Migration? The EU’s external borders have increasingly been the scene of human tragedies to which the EU, together with its Member States, must take immediate action. At the same time, migration needs to be better managed in all its aspects; through this new Agenda, the EU aims at providing its Member States with tools to do so in the medium as well as long term.
