Vienna Migration Conference 2020

Schengen, asylum reform and Europe’s migration diplomacy: Has COVID-19 changed everything?

The Vienna Migration Conference (VMC) 2020 takes place in a unique and dramatic year, also heralding the arrival of a new Commission with bold ideas for the future of European migration policy. But does the systemic shock of COVID-19 alter fundamental policy questions that in recent years have become almost intractable? Namely: how to balance responsibility and solidarity at the EU’s external borders; how to harness migration for development in priority regions; and how to arrive at a new consensus on European migration management, based on creative partnership with third countries that complies with international standards?
