The migration-development nexus in EU foreign policy

Description: This PhD research project examines the European Union's migration cooperation with third countries of origin and transit and the nexus between the EU's migration governance and development cooperation. It focuses on the emergence of the so-called migration-development nexus in EU foreign policy, the narrative and policy connections between development policy and migration governance, and the various approaches of EU institutions towards this nexus. Theoretically, the project applies the advocacy coalition framework to examine the migration-development policy field in the European Union.
