Migration, identity and borders are always big issues in European politics, but perhaps never more so than in European elections. A cornerstone of the current five-year political programme has been the EU’s pact on asylum and migration. A political agreement on it was reached in December after three years of negotiations, but technical talks continue this year. Centrists and the centre left hope that the pact will dent right-wing and far-right forces in the June elections. But so far, opinion polls don’t necessarily back that up. We discuss the stakes with two MEPs.
