New in Europe offers a progressive liberal vision on migration. It analyses two urgent challenges facing European countries at the moment: managing asylum and facilitating the integration of newcomers. Proposals are made about how to deal with these challenges today and in the future. Human dignity, equal opportunities, and durable international collaboration are the foundations that guide these proposals. Migration is a shared European reality. Our vision on migration is one of shared responsibility, freedom and solidarity.
“Translating liberal values to actual policy solutions makes this publication an important contribution to current migration debates in Europe. It shows how European countries could act on something that touches everyone.” – Sigrid Kaag, Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation.
“As liberals, we do not use politics of fear to win elections. We use politics of hope and optimism, without ever losing sight of reality.” – Bart Somers, mayor of Mechelen, Belgium
