The Blue Card Directive

Central Themes, Problem Issues, and Implementation in Selected Member States

Edited by: Tineke Strik, Carolus Grutters

In June 2011, the deadline expired for the implementation of Directive 2009/50/EU on the Conditions of Entry and Residence of Third-country Nationals for the Purposes of Highly Qualified Employment. This book highlights the decision making of the Blue Card Directive and the principles of its legal system, and it puts the Directive into an international perspective. Additionally, the book shows the impact of the Directive on the national level by an analysis of the transposition in five Member States. The book's contributions are based on lectures presented on a seminar on the Blue Card Directive, organized in late 2011 by the Center for Migration Law, co-sponsored by the Jean Monnet Program.
