The EU Blue Card initiative started in 2009 when the EU member states realized that there was a brain drain going on and that they were losing talented knowledge workers to the US, Canada and Australia. And despite the many unemployed in the EU at the time, there were no qualified European workers to fill the two to three million job vacancies. In short, the European Union was in desperate need of highly-skilled migrants from abroad. An EU Blue Card gives highly-qualified workers from outside the EU the right to live and work in an EU country, provided they meet specific qualifications. However, the EU Blue Card turned out to be successful in only a few EU member states. In this course, Nihat Kurt will go into the particularities of this EU Immigration instrument and its impediments for becoming an effective tool in practice.
