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.
