MIGRATION-DEVELOPMENT-SECURITY NEXUS IN THE CONTEXT OF THE EXTERNAL DIMENSIONS OF THE EU POLICIES
AB Politikalarının Dış Boyutları Bağlamında Göç-Kalkınma-Güvenlik İlişkisi

Ayşen ÜSTÜBİCİ [1] , Kübra ERGÜN [2]


This paper questions how migration-development nexus has been conceptualized on the EU policymaking agenda since the early 2000s. To explore this question, this paper focuses on documents laying out Union’s strategy for the external dimensions of the EU migration policy. The empirical evidence is gathered from the content analysis of Council Conclusions, Commission’s Communications and Reports, and the secondary literature on external dimensions of the EU migration policy. Our study finds that the already existing securitized approach to migrationdevelopment nexus prevailed after 2015, hollowing out the relation between migration and development with an increasingly narrower focus on development and the new narrative of ‘saving lives’. We conclude that the securitization of migration underpins the current ambivalent approach to the migration-development nexus in the EU policy-making context.
Bu çalışma, göç-kalkınma ilişkisinin 2000'li yılların başından bu yana Avrupa Birliği (AB) politikalarında nasıl kurulduğunu sorgulamaktadır. Bu amaç doğrultusunda bu makale, AB göç politikasının dış boyutları stratejisini ortaya koyan belgelere odaklanmaktadır. Ampirik veriler; Avrupa Konseyi sonuçları, AB Komisyonunun tebliğ ve raporlarının içerik analizinden ve AB göç politikasının dış boyutları hakkındaki ikincil literatürden elde edilmiştir. Çalışmamız, göç-kalkınma ilişkisine dair 2015 öncesi de var olan güvenlikleştirilmiş yaklaşımın 2015 sonrası, dar bir kalkınma anlayışı ve bu dönemde ortaya çıkan 'hayat kurtarma' anlatısı ile birlikte, daha çok öne çıktığını ortaya koyar. Göçün güvenlikleştirilmesinin, AB politika oluşturma bağlamında göç-kalkınma ilişkisine yönelik mevcut ikircikli yaklaşımın temelini oluşturduğu sonucuna ulaşılmıştır.
