Publishing date
29 April 2007

Jakob von Weizsäcker analyses the impact of migration from the perspective of the source country and the host country. He says that Europe will need to attract high-skilled immigrants to balance the overall skill mix of immigration, and suggests an EU-wide 'Blue Card' which would grant highly skilled workers access to the entire EU labour market.
