The Emergence of a European Law on Foreigners

On the basis of article 79 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, TFEU (Common Immigration Policy), eight different directives have been adopted since 2003. Some of these instruments are transversal, but most of them pursue a labour market oriented and categories-based approach. This project analyses these emerging tools of the EU’s Common Immigration Policy, their design, objectives and implementation. It also studies the impact of these new instruments on Switzerland – as a Non-EU Member State, but associated “à la carte” in certain areas.
