European Commission 3rd Annual Report on Immigration and Asylum

The European Commission’s 3rd Annual Report on Immigration and Asylum was published on 1 June 2012.

The report covers the 2011 developments in the areas of immigration and asylum, and is accompanied by a Eurobarometer on European citizens’ attitudes towards cross-border mobility, migration and security.

According to the survey, 8 out of 10 Europeans agree that EU Member States should offer protection and asylum to those in need and that rules for admitting asylum seekers should be the same across the EU. A large majority of Europeans (67%) think it is important to be able to travel within the EU without internal border controls.
