The aim of this seminar is to consider highly skilled migration (HSM) in the European Research Area: the reasons for its promotion and the European initiatives and measures towards this aim. The focus is to consider challenges in this context. Migration, central to European Union (EU) Member States’ immigration approaches and attitude, is also linked to a country’s trade and economic policy. Challenged by the persisting diversity and diverse interests among Member States the goal of a common European labour market and research area has not been achieved so far. It is, however, the core of European integration and growth while highly-skilled migration is the most important element of ERA. The dilemma of national policy makers is which policy to adopt: restricting HSM or opting in favour of openness and viewing HS Immigration policy as a stimulus during hard economic times. This seminar highlights the impact of EU initiatives and measures on Member States and the reasons that may lead to a policy restricting HSM, using Cyprus as a reference case. The seminar aspires to stimulate discussion, focusing on the need for cooperation and coordination, the development of an integrated policy that meets current and future requirements, strengthens the country’s ability to influence developments, and concurrently facilitates the implementation of EU law and policy.
