Migration and asylum: member states to collect more statistical data

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 28 maggio 2020

EU member states will have to collect more data about immigration, residence permits, illegal entry and returns, under new rules already agreed by MEPs and the Council.With 65 votes to 2, the Civil Liberties Committee backed on Monday the new Regulation on Community statistics on migration and international protection, whose aim is to ensure the availability of reliable, relevant and timely statistics in that field.The Regulation covers the collection of statistics on administrative and judicial procedures in EU countries relating to immigration, granting of residence permits, citizenship, asylum and other forms of international protection, illegal entry and stay, and returns.Under the new rules, member states will have to increase the frequency of the data they provide to Eurostat and disaggregate them by age and sex, by citizenship of the persons concerned and by unaccompanied minors.In the case of residence permits, they will have to clarify whether they are first-time permits, the grounds on which they are issued and length of validity. Concerning returns, collected data must reflect the type of return and the assistance received, as well as the country of destination.Some of the new data collections will start immediately, while others will be first tested in pilot studies. Eurostat will coordinate the pilot projects, with member states participating on a voluntary basis, to assess their feasibility, quality and comparability, and the costs and burdens involved.In the presentation of his draft recommendation to the Civil Liberties Committee, Jan-Christoph Oetjen (Renew, DE), who led the Parliament’s negotiating team in the interinstitutional talks, considered the changes will be a significant improvement “towards more evidence-based policy making in the migration and asylum field”.
