The EU’s new plan to handle migration is in the spotlight — Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson lays out the package and our podcast panel breaks it down. You’ll also hear from Clément Beaune, France’s minister of state for European affairs, on Turkey, European hard power and why the EU needs a software update.
Ylva Johansson sat down with POLITICO’s Andrew Gray on the day she revealed the new plan to tackle one of the most divisive issues facing Europe: migration. Johansson portrayed migration as a management challenge that Europe is eminently capable of mastering: “It’s not rocket science,” she declared. But does a retreat from mandatory redistribution of asylum seekers around the Continent mean Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has won the argument? Listen to hear Johansson’s answer.
POLITICO’s Matthew Karnitschnig and Jacopo Barigazzi examine what’s new and what’s not so new in the plan, look at the politics behind the policy and sum up the early reaction from diplomats and capitals around the Continent.
Clément Beaune visited our Brussels newsroom this week for a live interview with POLITICO’s Rym Momtaz and Maïa de La Baume. You’ll hear highlights of their discussion on the podcast — and you can watch the full interview here.
