Cooperation on Readmission in the Euro-Mediterranean Area

This study investigates the working of the European Union (EU) readmission system in the Euro-Mediterranean and Euro-African contexts, as well as its implications for interstate cooperation, human rights observance and migrants’ conditions. The three contributions interrogate the various consequences of cooperation on readmission as well as the factors that have fed into the expansion of a web of bilateral agreements. Informalisation – namely the adoption or stipulation of agreements, regardless of their typologies, which are outside formal regulatory channels and beyond parliamentary scrutiny – has widely affected patterns of cooperation while having detrimental consequences on migrants’ rights and states’ accountability, as well as unintended effects on international cooperation.
