Recent Changes in Migration Movements and Policies: France
Abstract:After a number of years of strong growth (13% annual average between 1995 and 2003), permanent inflows have slowed down significantly since 2004. In 2006, approximately 135 000 foreigners were admitted for residence, a level comparable to that of 2005. This levelling off is due to the decrease in the number of foreigners granted asylum in France (‐6 400 in comparison with 2005) and the increase in family migration (+4 300) and labour migration (+1 500).
