Circular migration

Online discussion on circular migration: Final report

The European Commission has promoted “partnership policies” to address problems of illegal migration as well as the adverse consequences of health worker migration.

One important form of partnership is the promotion of “circular migration”, an approach involving some kind of “rotation” through periodic return of health workers to their home countries. Policies to promote it include guarantees re-admission, recognition of dual citizenship, multiple-entry and multi-year visas, etc.
