EU: Tracking the Pact: Latest draft of the "solidarity" text in the Asylum and Migration Management Regulation


On 4 October the Slovenian Presidency circulated re-drafted sections of the proposed Asylum and Migration Management Regulation to national delegations in the Council. The proposals cover the section on "solidarity" - that is, how member states are supposed to aid one another in dealing with the "burden" of individuals arriving in the EU - and parts of Article 6, concerning "recurring disembarkations following search and rescue operations."

See: NOTE from: Presidency to: Delegations: Draft REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL on asylum and migration management (Council doc. 12421/21, LIMITE, 4 October 2021, pdf):

"1. Delegations will find in Annex Presidency compromise suggestions on the Asylum and Migration Management Regulation, covering Part IV (Solidarity) as well as Article 6(4) and corresponding definitions (Article 2). The text is based on the modifications presented at the Asylum WP meeting on 16 June 2021 (document 9656/21) and contains further suggestions by the Presidency.

2. On the basis of the first examination of the Solidarity Part of the AMMR carried out between January and April 2021, the Presidency intends to continue examining the technical issues covered by this Part. It is understood that there are many issues of concern to Member States which are not addressed. However, the Presidency believes that these issues should be part of larger and more in-depth considerations at a later stage."
