Over the past 20 years, the European Union has put in place some of the highest common asylum standards in the world. And in the past two years, European migration policy has advanced in leaps and bounds with the European Agenda on Migration proposed by the Juncker Commission in May 2015. Europe is a continent of solidarity and will continue keeping legal pathways open for people in need of international protection.

Migration is a global issue that can only be addressed effectively by the international community as a whole. Managing the situation together with our partners remains at the top of the European agenda. To this end, the European Union continues to work relentlessly in close cooperation with Member States and international partners to save lives, provide protection, offer safe and legal pathways for migration and tackle the root causes that force people to leave their homes in first place, as well as fight the criminal networks that often take advantage of people's despair.
