    This EPIM policy update covers the elections in Italy and Hungary, which both highlighted the continued significance of immigration for European electorates. Attempts at forming a new government in Italy and Viktor Orbán’s plans for his new term in Hungary will be closely watched in the weeks and months ahead. In the closer look section, the Migration Policy Group presents a new Europe-wide campaign on migration with the objective of engaging the public and influencing EU migration policy. The policy update’s special focus deals with the coalition agreement in Germany and the proposal for a new immigration bill in France. It also considers to what extent a German-Franco alliance on immigration policies could emerge at EU level and how this would impact on a number of ongoing discussions on EU migration policy reforms. This issue also examines the findings of the Court of Justice in the ‘A and S’ and ‘Pisciotti’ cases. Further sections report on progress made on the drafts of the UN Global Compacts and reflect on the second anniversary of the EU-Turkey Statement. This EPIM policy update looks at the latest developments in the negotiations of the legislative reforms of the Eurodac Regulation, the Dublin Regulation, the Reception Conditions Directive and the Asylum Procedures Directive. Finally, this policy update also includes a list of funding opportunities and calls.
