    Abstract

    The current asylum and migration debate in the European Union is distinguished by the growing importance of somehow integrating asylum and migration issues into the Union's relations with third countries. The external dimension of asylum and migration policy is more than ever salient and is gradually leaving the stage of declarations of intent. Now work is being made of the implementation and the financial implications of this new policy area. However, this seems to be quite problematic. The difficulty-as well as the challenge-lies in the fact that coordination of asylum and migration policy and the Union's external affairs is inherently cross-pillar. To start with, this paper will briefly sketch the emergence and evolution of the external dimension of EU asylum and migration policy by means of an overview of the programs of the consecutive EU Presidencies, the Communications and Reports from the Commission and the Conclusions of the European Councils. Then, based on theories of governance and securitisation, we will outline a theoretical framework that aims at providing an explanation for the emergence of this new policy dimension. Finally, in an attempt to narrow down, four case studies of the external dimension will be introduced: the High-Level Working Group on Asylum and Migration, clauses and agreements on migration management and readmission, cooperation with the Balkans on asylum and migration, and temporary protection of displaced persons in case of a mass influx.
