Study on Migration and the Economic Crisis: Implications for Policy in the European Union  provides a synthesis and analysis of the latest available evidence in order to assess the impact of the global economic crisis on migrants and migration policy in the European Union.

The study has been commissioned and funded by the Directorate General for Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities of the European Commission under the framework of the IOM Independent Network of Labour Migration and Integration Experts (LINET).
