This made him The Broker’s point person on Central and Eastern European issues.

New dossier: the Migration Trail

Migration is well on its way in becoming the 2015 political theme in Europe and for the years ahead. Although many media sources have covered the issue, more substantial knowledge will be of essential importance in shaping an effective future migration policy. For this reason, The Broker has launched a new dossier on European migration policies within a globalizing world.
