Publisher: Center for Policy Studies, Hungary
Hungary’s migration policy shows a strong preferences towards ethnic Hungarians who arrive from neighboring states, while it applies very strict conditions for the registration of third-country nationals from other states, according to this Center for Policy Studies report.
Nevertheless, the country meets the minimum requirements in order to be eligible to access EU funds, according to the report, which was released as part of the project ‘Assessing Integration Measures for Vulnerable Migrant Groups‘ (ASSESS).
ASSESS monitors and assesses the effectiveness of integration measures for three vulnerable migrant groups – women, children and victims of trafficking. The assessment aims to identify the strengths and weaknesses in the application of the Common Basic Principles on Migrant Integration when it comes to the integration of vulnerable migrant groups. In addition, it will serve to identify and initiate the exchange of good practice in the field between EU countries of different migration patterns, regimes and experiences.
The report is the outcome of a study conducted in the first phase of the EU-funded ASSESS project. The findings of ten national reports will serve the development of a comparative report on the same topic and will aid the development of tailored methodology and specific indicators for monitoring the integration of vulnerable migrant groups in the EU.
