Subject Highlights


This chapter offers an analysis of the EU Mobility Partnerships as one case in point for policy intersectionality, within the framework of the multi-level governance literature. It argues that the governance of Mobility Partnerships is characterized by its multi-actor nature, and focuses on the consequences of different actors’ preferences and interactions for policy-making and implementation. In particular, it emphasises the roles of the non-EU countries and member states in making and shaping EU external migration policy. Finally, the chapter analyses implementation, something which has been understudied in the literature to date. It argues that the multi-actor nature of EU external migration policy presents obstacles to implementation due to the different policy visions of the different actors, and the non-hierarchical structure which links them.
