The case for stronger EU-wide cooperation on migration policy is overwhelming. However, recent developments have been very disappointing, and the lack of tangible progress on addressing current issues has contributed to a backlash from voters.

However, while decisive steps continue to look unlikely, incremental efforts already under way could bear fruit in the long run.
