***JAI : décision relative aux dispositions de l'acquis Schengen...***(version originale en EN)
***JAI : décision relative aux dispositions de l'acquis Schengen et débat avec les ministres de l'Emploi sur les migrations, l'emploi et la Stratégie de Lisbonne :
The Council adopted a decision on the full application of the provisions of the Schengen acquis in the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia.
In the margins of the Council, Justice and Home Affairs Ministers met Employment Ministers met for a policy debate on migration, employment and the Lisbon Strategy. In the light of the debate, the Presidency concluded that:
- there is a close link between migration, employment and the Lisbon Strategy for Growth and Jobs. Well managed legal migration can continue to contribute to the realisation of the Lisbon Goals and should be aligned with skills shortages and labour market requirements;
- work should now be taken forward on the proposed Directives on the admission of third country nationals for the purpose of highly qualified employment and on the single application procedure and a common set of rights for legally residing third country workers;
- measures to promote integration are important, including in the area of skills and education and employment and social policies, as are the efforts of migrants themselves to integrate;
- combating illegal employment of third country nationals and undeclared work is equally important and dissuasive sanctions and effective enforcement can contribute to this. Work should therefore also be taken forward on the Directive on sanctions against employers of illegally staying third country nationals and on the follow-up to the Commission's Communication on undeclared work.
The new EU Counter-Terrorism Coordinator, Mr. Gilles de Kerchove drew the Council's attention to five subjects: information sharing and special investigative methods; radicalisation and recruitment; financing of technical assistance to third countries; organisation of work within the Council; and implementation of EU instruments.
