Other speakers to be confirmed 

After a breakthrough in the negotiations of key proposals of the New Pact on Migration and Asylum, the EU has never been closer to adopting long-awaited asylum reforms. Yet divisions between member states remain, slowing down progress on the foreseen roadmap. With elections at the national and European levels on the horizon, further questions arise.

Will member states agree on all reform proposals in the package, and how will the European Parliament respond to further delays? Will the ongoing trialogue negotiations deliver reforms that can strengthen resilience in the EU’s asylum system and rebuild trust between member states, while also addressing concerns about fundamental rights? And what should the EU’s future priorities be, depending on the negotiations’ outcome?

This hybrid Policy Dialogue will bring together representatives from the European Parliament, Council and Commission to take stock of the progress achieved so far, the challenges ahead and the opportunities to overcome them.

The event will be followed by refreshments. If you have any questions, please contact Marina Grama at m.grama@epc.eu.
