Third countries nationals within the EU legal order - recent developments and search for possible solutions.
The migration policy came into the European statutory framework with the Treaty of Maastricht and since then it has obviously undergone significant improvement from raw beginnings to a sanguine legal and political framework, within a broader field of Justice and Home Affairs. Facing current geopolitical developments, however, this framework was further developed, calling upon solidarity and responsibility among the EU Member States, and aiming at a balanced and comprehensive common migration policy at EU level. How the Union could balance human rights, life and money within its political and legal framework, and - perhaps more importantly - which costs are to be paid by whom, will be a point of departure of this lecture, concluded by an outline of possible solutions.
