europe defenceEU countries will have to allocate more funds to improve their asylum systems and the integration of migrants under an EP-Council deal backed by the civil liberties committee on Thursday. The new Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund for the next 7 years sets minimum amounts to be spent on asylum and integration policies. MEPs also endorsed the new Internal Security Fund, aimed at improving police cooperation, border surveillance and crime prevention.The Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) has a total budget for 2014-2020 of €3.1 billion. Parliament and Council negotiators agreed that €2.7 billion will go to national programmes (€360 million for resettlement) and €385 million to Union actions, emergency and technical assistance and the European Migration Network.At least 20% of the €2.4 billion that member states will draw from the AMIF will be spent in measures to support legal migration and promote the effective integration of migrants. Member states will also be obliged to allocate at least an additional 20% of the funds to asylum measures. EU countries will have to provide detailed explanations if they want to stay below these percentages and countries facing “structural deficiencies in the area of accommodation, infrastructure and service” will not be able to spend less in the field of asylum.
