Two ways of convergence of migration policies in Europe
19 December 2008

The project, fundede by the Ministry of Education, University and Research, the University of Turin and FIERI, was part of a wider initiative on ‘Identities, citizenship and public policy in the EU: the challenges and outlook for the European political system’, involving the University of Trento, the University of Siena, the University of Pavia and the Bocconi University in Milan. The work of the Turin-based research unit, on the one hand, attempted to assess the amount of convergence present vertically, namely produced by the community-wide application of migration policies, and to understand the role played by Italy in this process. On the other hand, it attempted to ascertain the existence of a process of spontaneous, or horizontal convergence among countries, capable of complementing vertical convergence or compensating for its absence. In this regard, particular attention was devoted to: bi- or multi-lateral agreements between single member states; spontaneous processes of policy learning and the consequent phenomena of policy transfer and policy diffusion; actors that function as convergence vectors and in particular the category of experts.
