The report, based on the official statistics of the german federal office and the work of the Research Center Berlin (WZB), shows the fundamental relationship between the number of persons able to work, active people and the unemployed in Germany. The coincidence of growing bad jobs and downgrowing unemployement does not mean that there is any logical link betweenn the two phenomena.

Of all aspects of international migration, remittances are the least controversial. Labour-receiving countries welcome and encourage them, since they signal a continuing attachment of the migrant worker to the country of origin, and possibly a disposition to eventually return home. Moreover, remittances tend be perceived as a substitute for aid. In this logic any increase in volume reduces the pressure to increase ODA. Labour-sending countries for their part welcome remittances as an important source of foreign exchange.

The EU 27 population is projected to increase from 495 million on 1 January 2008 to 521 million in 2035, and thereafter gradually decline to 506 million in 2060. The annual number of births is projected to fall over the period 2008-2060, while at the same time the annual number of deaths is projected to continue rising. From 2015 onwards deaths would outnumber births, and hence population growth due to natural increase would cease.

The inventory of all the standard bilateral readmission agreements, concluded by each of the 27 EU Member States, would not suffice to provide an overall picture of the various mechanisms and cooperative instruments that have emerged, over the last decade, to sustain the removal or expulsion of illegally staying third-country nationals.

Aujourd’hui, le Syndicat de la Magistrature, la Ligue des Droits de l’Homme et d’autres s’émeuvent de la création d’Edvige, un fichier (avalisé, avec certaines réserves, par la CNIL) fichant entre autres les personnalités publiques (& les mineurs) « susceptibles de porter atteinte à l’ordre public ». Dans le même temps, personne ne parle de Cristina, un autre fichier, bien plus problématique.

Le projet de création d’un « Observatoire européen des frontières » permettra, à travers un regard non gouvernemental, d’informer sur la situation des migrants aux frontières, de dénoncer les violations des droits qui y sont commises, de contribuer à leur respect, et ainsi d’améliorer la prise en compte des droits fondamentaux dans les politiques d’immigration des pays de transit et d’accueil.
