Although the movements of persons into, out of and within each EU State vary, each society shares similar migration challenges and opportunities. The EU is an area without internal borders, therefore migration bears great significance. The European Parliament adopted crucial proposals that enable an increased co-financing rate for Member States subject to financial support on actions concerning the management of migration flows (European Refugee Fund, the European Return Fund and the European Fund for the Integration of Third-Country Nationals and External Borders Fund).
· Covers 4 funds making up "Solidarity and management of migratory flows" framework: European Refugee Fund, European Return Fund, European Fund for Integration of third-country nationals and External Borders Fund.
· Increased co-financing of the migration-related funds for member states included in the financial support mechanisms.
· Co-financing (part financed by the EU) to increase 20 percentage points to 70%. For countries covered by the cohesion fund the increased rate would be maximum 95%.
