Institut für Europäische Politik Berlin, Berlin, Germany

This chapter discusses how the migration issue has been addressed in the political debate prior to the 2019 European election. It provides an analysis of comparing and contrasting the stances that European parties have taken on migration during the EU electoral campaign of 2019 and sketches out what effects this might have on EU migration and asylum policy in the long run. While populist and right-wing parties have made migration the core of their campaigns, other parties have moved their focus to other issues such as social, economic and environmental topics.
