Will Germany grant asylum to 25 percent of all refugees coming to Europe via Italy?
Germany and a number of EU member states have agreed on a temporary emergency mechanism for rescue operations in the Mediterranean Sea. However, this does not foresee fixed quotas for refugees that Germany would take from Italy.
Will it soon be easier for unskilled migrants to work in Germany?
The Cabinet has approved a Skilled Labour Immigration Bill (draft law), which applies to workers from non-EU countries.
The bill is aimed solely at skilled migrants, i.e. those who hold a university degree or a vocational training qualification.
