26th October 2023, 10.30-12.00 (Brussels time)

Despite increased discussions and activities on complementary pathways into protection into the EU in recent years, one issue has emerged but rarely been discussed: the secondary movement of beneficiaries of complementary pathways.
While the secondary movement of asylum seekers is well-known, the secondary movement of beneficiaries of complementary pathways raises a number of important questions regarding
  • target groups and their aspirations;
  • programme set-up;
  • reception and integration;
  • remedial action.
As complementary pathways expand and multiply, this was an apposite moment to consider this important issue.
