Details

The European Parliament adopted by 492 votes to 109, with 35 abstentions, a legislative resolution on the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Regulation (EC) No 862/2007 of the European Parliament and of the Council on Community statistics on migration and international protection.

The European Parliament's position adopted at first reading under the ordinary legislative procedure amended the Commission's proposal as follows.

Statistics on international migration

Members considered due to the constant changing and diverse nature of current migratory flows, comprehensive and comparable gender-disaggregated statistical data on the migrant population are needed to understand the reality of the situation, identify vulnerabilities and inequalities, and provide policy makers with reliable data and information for the development of future public policies that take into account the gender dimension and are based on human rights.

Member States shall provide the Commission (Eurostat) with statistics on aspects such as the number of persons having their usual residence in the territory of the Member State and having acquired during the reference year a long-term residence permit, disaggregated by age and gender.

The first reference year shall be 2020.

The national and Union statistical authorities shall collect the statistics on applications for international protection based on the grounds of gender, including gender-based violence. Migration statistics should also take account of variables such as gender identity and sexual orientation to collect data on LGBTQI+ persons’ experiences and inequalities in migration and asylum processes.

Sufficient financial resources shall be allocated for the collection, analysis and dissemination of high quality national and Union statistics on migration and international protection.

Implementation

Members propose to confer implementing powers to establish rules on appropriate formats for data transmission. The Commission shall also be able to adopt delegated acts in order to update certain definitions and to supplement Regulation (EC) No 862/2007 in order to determine the groupings of data and additional disaggregations and to lay down rules on accuracy and quality standards.

Report

The Commission shall thoroughly assess the statistics compiled pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 862/2007, as well as their quality and timely provision, for the purpose of submitting reports to the European Parliament and to the Council. Close consultation should be held with all actors involved in asylum data collection, including United Nations agencies and other relevant international and non-governmental organisations.

   EP - Committee report tabled for plenary, 1st reading/single reading
Details

The Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs adopted the report by Cecilia WIKSTRÖM (ALDE, SE) on the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Regulation (EC) No 862/2007 of the European Parliament and of the Council on Community statistics on migration and international protection.

The committee responsible recommended that the European Parliament's position adopted at first reading under the ordinary legislative procedure should amend the Commission's proposal as follows.

Statistics on international migration, usually resident population and acquisition of citizenship : Members believe that, due to the constant changing and diverse nature of current migratory flows, comprehensive and comparable gender-disaggregated statistical data on the migrant population are needed to understand the reality of the situation, identify vulnerabilities and inequalities, and provide policy makers with reliable data and information for the development of future public policies that take into account the gender dimension and are based on human rights.

Member States shall provide the Commission (Eurostat) with statistics on aspects such as the number of persons having their usual residence in the territory of the Member State and having acquired during the reference year a long-term residence permit, disaggregated by age and gender.

The first reference year shall be 2020 .

The national and Union statistical authorities shall collect the statistics on applications for international protection based on the grounds of gender, including gender-based violence .

Migration statistics should also take account of variables such as gender identity and sexual orientation to collect data on LGBTQI+ persons’ experiences and inequalities in migration and asylum processes.

Sufficient financial resources shall be allocated for the collection, analysis and dissemination of high quality national and Union statistics on migration and international protection.

Report : every three years, the European Commission shall report on the application of the Regulation. These reports shall follow a thorough assessment of implementation and consultation of key actors involved in data collection and analysis in the area of migration and international protection.

PURPOSE: to revise and complete the existing common rules for the collection and compilation of European statistics on migration and international protection.

PROPOSED ACT: Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council.

ROLE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: the European Parliament decides in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure and on an equal footing with the Council.

BACKGROUND: Regulation (EC) No 862/2007 of the European Parliament and of the Council establishes a common and comparable legal framework for European statistics on migration and international protection.

To respond to new needs within the Union for statistics on asylum and managed migration , and the rapidly changing characteristics of migration, the Commission considers that there is a need for a framework allowing quick response to changing needs as regards statistics on asylum and managed migration.

The Commission has regularly acknowledged the need to improve the collection of statistics, particularly as regards the figures on the return of third-country nationals staying illegally in the EU, and as regards children.

CONTENT: the main purpose of this initiative is to amend Regulation (EC) No 862/2007 so as to provide a legal basis for existing voluntary data collections already conducted by most national authorities, while providing the necessary flexibility to adapt to future data needs.

On the basis of information provided by stakeholders and taking into account immediate priorities to address the most serious shortcomings, it is proposed to:

increase the frequency of statistics on returns and obligations to leave from annual to quarterly , while introducing additional disaggregations; introduce new disaggregations of asylum statistics by unaccompanied minors ; add new disaggregations of resettlement statistics; introduce statistics on first-time asylum applicants and new statistics on Dublin re-examination requests; introduce new disaggregations of statistics on residence permits .

In order to ensure a better availability of European statistics on asylum and managed migration and to introduce a flexibility mechanism , the Commission could adopt implementing acts for the purpose of giving effect to the provisions on disaggregations.

ROLE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: the European Parliament decides in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure and on an equal footing with the Council. BACKGROUND: Regulation (EC) No 862/2007 of the European Parliament and of the Council establishes a common and comparable legal framework for European statistics on migration and international protection. To respond to new needs within the Union for statistics on asylum and managed migration , and the rapidly changing characteristics of migration, the Commission considers that there is a need for a framework allowing quick response to changing needs as regards statistics on asylum and managed migration. The Commission has regularly acknowledged the need to improve the collection of statistics, particularly as regards the figures on the return of third-country nationals staying illegally in the EU, and as regards children. CONTENT: the main purpose of this initiative is to amend Regulation (EC) No 862/2007 so as to provide a legal basis for existing voluntary data collections already conducted by most national authorities, while providing the necessary flexibility to adapt to future data needs. On the basis of information provided by stakeholders and taking into account immediate priorities to address the most serious shortcomings, it is proposed to: increase the frequency of statistics on returns and obligations to leave from annual to quarterly , while introducing additional disaggregations; introduce new disaggregations of asylum statistics by unaccompanied minors ; add new disaggregations of resettlement statistics; introduce statistics on first-time asylum applicants and new statistics on Dublin re-examination requests; introduce new disaggregations of statistics on residence permits . In order to ensure a better availability of European statistics on asylum and managed migration and to introduce a flexibility mechanism , the Commission could adopt implementing acts for the purpose of giving effect to the provisions on disaggregations.

The committee responsible recommended that the European Parliament's position adopted at first reading under the ordinary legislative procedure should amend the Commission's proposal as follows. Statistics on international migration, usually resident population and acquisition of citizenship : Members believe that, due to the constant changing and diverse nature of current migratory flows, comprehensive and comparable gender-disaggregated statistical data on the migrant population are needed to understand the reality of the situation, identify vulnerabilities and inequalities, and provide policy makers with reliable data and information for the development of future public policies that take into account the gender dimension and are based on human rights. Member States shall provide the Commission (Eurostat) with statistics on aspects such as the number of persons having their usual residence in the territory of the Member State and having acquired during the reference year a long-term residence permit, disaggregated by age and gender. The first reference year shall be 2020 . The national and Union statistical authorities shall collect the statistics on applications for international protection based on the grounds of gender, including gender-based violence . Migration statistics should also take account of variables such as gender identity and sexual orientation to collect data on LGBTQI+ persons’ experiences and inequalities in migration and asylum processes. Sufficient financial resources shall be allocated for the collection, analysis and dissemination of high quality national and Union statistics on migration and international protection. Report : every three years, the European Commission shall report on the application of the Regulation. These reports shall follow a thorough assessment of implementation and consultation of key actors involved in data collection and analysis in the area of migration and international protection.

The European Parliament's position adopted at first reading under the ordinary legislative procedure amended the Commission's proposal as follows. Statistics on international migration Members considered due to the constant changing and diverse nature of current migratory flows, comprehensive and comparable gender-disaggregated statistical data on the migrant population are needed to understand the reality of the situation, identify vulnerabilities and inequalities, and provide policy makers with reliable data and information for the development of future public policies that take into account the gender dimension and are based on human rights.

Migration statistics should also take account of variables such as gender identity and sexual orientation to collect data on LGBTQI+ persons’ experiences and inequalities in migration and asylum processes. Sufficient financial resources shall be allocated for the collection, analysis and dissemination of high quality national and Union statistics on migration and international protection. Implementation Members propose to confer implementing powers to establish rules on appropriate formats for data transmission. The Commission shall also be able to adopt delegated acts in order to update certain definitions and to supplement Regulation (EC) No 862/2007 in order to determine the groupings of data and additional disaggregations and to lay down rules on accuracy and quality standards. Report The Commission shall thoroughly assess the statistics compiled pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 862/2007, as well as their quality and timely provision, for the purpose of submitting reports to the European Parliament and to the Council. Close consultation should be held with all actors involved in asylum data collection, including United Nations agencies and other relevant international and non-governmental organisations.
