European Commission - Upcoming events

Thursday 8 December: The Commission publishes the 4th Report on the progress made in the implementation of the EU-Turkey Statement

The news:

The European Commission is presenting the fourth Report on the progress made in the implementation of the EU-Turkey Statement, summarising the progress made in the implementation of the Statement since it took effect on 20 March and developments having taken place since the last report published on 28 September.

 

The background:

The aim of the EU-Turkey Statement, agreed on 18 March 2016, is to replace disorganised, chaotic, irregular and dangerous migratory flows by organised, safe and legal pathways to Europe for those entitled to international protection in line with EU and international law. A core goal of the Statement has been to break the business model of smugglers exploiting migrants and refugees taking the potentially fatal risk of crossing irregularly from Turkey to Greece.

 

The event:

Thursday 8 December 2016: The Commission publishes the fourth Report on the progress made in the implementation of the EU-Turkey Statement – exact timing to be confirmed.
