Think Tank Review – Issue 23/2015

Welcome to issue 23 of the Think Tank Review compiled by the EU Council Library. It gives a short abstract of papers published in March 2015, with a link to the full text.

This month’s exceptionally rich Review has a focus on the economy, with several think tanks looking at the details of the ECB’s quantitative easing, comparing it to precedents elsewhere, or trying to ascertain the impact of QE and other measures on one or more Member States.

The Special Focus of this Review covers immigration and asylum, with papers looking at models of refugee distribution (Konrad Adenauer Stiftung), the Dublin system (Migration Policy Institute), labour migration from the EU and third countries in Germany and Denmark (Bertelsmann Stiftung, IFRI and Taenketanken Europa).

For those with a specific interest in the UK, we signal an independent initiative which by accident carries the same, admittedly not too original name as this Review: http://thinktankreview.co.uk/ offers a selection of reports from British think tanks. See their selection criteria and, last week, their convenient round-up on party manifestos.

As always, feedback is welcome at central.library@consilium.europa.eu.

The next Review will be out in May 2015, with papers published in April.
