International migration into and within the EU is a key issue with far-reaching consequences for Member States and the EU as a whole. It affects the integration of resident immigrants, how institutions can adapt to preserve social cohesion, and the management of demand-and-supply-driven migration.
Halting or significantly reducing immigration to Europe is seen by IMISCOE-researchers as undesirable and unrealistic. IMISCOE was a major European Network of Excellence and brought together over 500 researchers from 23 European institutes, to provide a robust research base for policies on migration. It was funded by the EC from 2004 until 2010. Since 1 April 2010 IMISCOE has become an independent research network financed through institutional fees.
