Immigration Policy 2.0

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Immigration Policy 2.0 is a European Union project that aims to facilitate the participation and involve immigrant citizens in immigration policies framed in Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Program(CIP)

The EU government organizations are developing new ways to be more effective in the control of 27 member countries' migration flows. For this purpose, the objective of the project, which began in September 2010 and completed in August 2013, is to centralize the concerns and demands of citizens through a digital platform to connect with the community through policies based on development collaborative processes.

Web 2.0, supported by modeling policies, manages to centralize services and process various demands through harmonized actions (user friendly). While these services are designed to ensure that citizens make responsible decisions based on the information provided.

Strands of action[edit]

  • Strengthen government, politicians and decision making in order to work and collaborate based on immigration policies of the EU.
  • To facilitate the creation of social groups of legal immigrants in order to be informed and in turn evaluate such policies based on the audit of public opinion.

There is now a great difficulty to quantify the fight against tax fraud and exploitation of illegal immigrants, in a situation in which European countries are in the process of adjustments due to the financial crisis that began in 2008.

One of the keys to combating the exploitation of immigration is to find new ways of monitoring for the analysis of these illegal moves through the so-called Semantic Web. A barrier in the EU is the difference between legal policies adopted by each one of the countries on its borders.

The new era Web 2.0 based on collaboration and content of the citizens themselves, or the phenomenon of the decade, the explosion of social networks are analyzed by the EU in order to eradicate the gray economy, which experts currently estimate between 10% and 20% of gross domestic product (GDP) of the European Union.
