European Commission - Upcoming events

March 2017: The Commission will present a revised Action Plan on Return and a Recommendation to Member States for an efficient EU return policy

The news:

The European Commission will present a revised EU Action Plan on Return and a Recommendation to Member States on how to make return procedures more effective. 

The background:

The European Council in its Conclusions of 20-21 October 2016 called for reinforcing national administrative processes for returns and the Malta Declaration of Heads and State or Government of 3 February 2017 highlighted the need for a critical review of European return policy with an analysis of how the tools available at national and at Union level are applied. The revised Action Plan on Return and the Recommendation to Member States to be presented by the Commission respond to these calls and complement and reinforce the actions presented in the Commission's first Action Plan on Return adopted in September 2015.
