Refugees in Europe

Millions of refugees would like to come to Europe, especially Germany. How can these people be integrated? What are the consequences for our society? What are the costs involved? Looking for answers and solutions, several areas of research are addressing the questions of migration and integration at the Kiel Institute. Especially, the MEDAM project focuses on these issues. We have compiled our current research results and contributions to the debate for you.

2018 MEDAM Assessment Report on Asylum and Migration Policies in Europe

The EU faces major challenges in asylum and migration policy: reorganize the EU asylum system, secure the external border, curb irregular immigration through cooperation with African governments, and support developing countries that host large numbers of refugees from Syria and elsewhere. 

In the 2018 MEDAM Assessment Report, we propose a comprehensive strategy for EU asylum and immigration policies that is both politically feasible and effective, based on the concept of flexible solidarity between EU member states.
