Comparative Study of the Laws in the 27 Member States for Legal Immigration including an Assessment of the Conditions and Formalities Imposed by each Member State for Newcomers” Volume 1 (Armenian) aims at providing an overview and analysis of the conditions for legal immigration for third country nationals, with a view to examining the benefits and possibilities of common policies in this field at the EU level.

The study includes country reports for each of the 27 EU Member States.
The Volume I includes EU Law and Policy on Migration; Comparison of Immigration Laws; Country Reports for Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Latvia, Poland.
