Guild, Elspeth. (2007) EU Policy on Labour Migration: A First Look at the Commission's Blue Card Initiative. CEPS Policy Brief No. 145, 15 November 2007. [Policy Paper]

(1) The question of first entry by third country nationals to the member states’ territory and labour market, while within the competence of the EC since 2001, (2) has been the hardest of the immigration and asylum powers on which to find agreement in the Council.

That first attempt by the Commission to achieve a directive on first entry for economic activities was characterised by a uniform approach – applying to all types of economic activity.
