Note(s)

1. Mobility partnerships (MPs) are an important tool of the EU’s Global Approach to Migration and Mobility (GAMM), providing the overall framework for managing various forms of legal movement between the EU and third countries. Such partnerships are agreed with those third countries that have in place effective mechanisms for readmission of irregular migrants.
