Some ethical considerations regarding the phenomenon of migration and its management in the EU
Keywords:migration management, European Union, ethics, policy choices
The European Union’s policy toward migration issues, especially after the peak of the crisis in 2015 is a contentious question among the Member States. Adopted legislation refers to different aspects of this policy area aiming to manage the highly complex reality of the phenomenon of migration. This article seeks to sketch a framework for the ethical evaluation of migration-related policy choices and regulation from a theoretical perspective. After identifying the general context and some tensions of this policy area, a tentative matrix is introduced offering some angles for ethical evaluation.
