Since the 1980s, the Central and Eastern European Countries have established new administrative and legislative systems to cope with large-scale population movements, while being affected by, and seeking to adapt to, the emerging EU border and migration regime. This co-publication with the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) reviews the migration trends and policy developments in 15 CEE countries in the period 1997-1998. It also looks at key migration policy issues affecting the CEE region.
IOM’s second Central and Eastern European report was published in 2002, jointly with T.M.C. Asser Press.
