Migration, udvikling og sikkerhed i EU - en sproglig analyse af EU’s migrations- og udviklingspolitik

Elisa Kjærgaard Nielsen

Studenteropgave: Speciale


Scholars have extensively criticised the European Union’s intensified restrictions on the migration policy. It has been claimed that the areas of migration and development in the EU have only come together as one area of policy to serve the purpose of regulating migration, and that the EU-institutions use development to reach that goal. Further the thesis deals with whether the EU-institutions try to exclude as many migrants as possible, and thereby (sometimes) violate the Geneva Convention. Through a thorough analysis of the EU-Council documents concerning migration, the criticisms will be investigated and discussed. The thesis investigates the connection between migration, development and security and looks into what significance the EU-migration regulation has for migrants rights and possibilities before they enter the EU. The thesis further questions to what extent securitisation influences the migration and development policies of the EU. In addition, the thesis deals with the power relations between the EU and development countries. The goal does, as critics point out, appear to be the closing of EU borders to all unwanted migrants. The thesis finally concludes that securitisation is indeed part of migration and development politics in the EU. To finalise, there is also a consideration of and doubt about the success rate of migration and development as one policy area.
