Evaluation Modern Migration Policy Act awarded to Institute of Immigration Law
The Scientific Research and Documentation Centre (WODC) has commissioned the Institute of Immigration Law to evaluate the Modern Migration Policy Act. The purpose of this law was to develop a modern, selective and innovative admission policy for legal migration, which is welcoming for economically desirable aliens and restrictive for others.
The law introduced three major changes. Firstly, the procedures concerning admission and residence were combined. Secondly, the role of the referee during this procedure was enlarged. Thirdly, the system of control and enforcement was altered. The aim of the evaluation is to discover whether the objectives of the Act have been achieved. Gerrie Lodder, researcher and lecturer at the Institute of Immigration Law will conduct the research.
