This study presents a comparative overview of recent policy developments in
Greece, Hungary and Italy, which present some similarities as regards their
position in the migration routes, but also very different approaches.
The focus of the analysis is on progress achieved in the last three years in the
adaptation of the reception and integration system for the high numbers of new arrivals and on the main challenges encountered, with a focus on labour market integration measures.
Further, special attention is given to changes in perceptions, public opinion and political discourse with respect to the asylum and integration of refugees and how this influenced policy strategies.
The study has been prepared at request of the European Parliament’s Employment and Social Affairs Committee.
