Godin, Marie; Maria Gabrielsen Jumbert; & Mathias Hatleskog Tjønn (2022) Comparative experiences of third-country cooperation, MIGNEX Background Paper. Oslo: Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO).

​Comparing the experiences of the 10 MIGNEX countries in the EU Migration Partnership, this paper maps the evolution of the EU’s external approach to migration, introduces and tests the conditionality–compensation nexus and presents a typology casting new light on diversity in EU migration partnerships.

​Over the past two decades, the notion of migration partnerships has evolved into a complex patchwork of tools and instruments designed to help the EU govern migration. 

The conditionality– compensation nexus introduced in this paper draws attention to power dynamics in EU migration partnerships. 

Different factors influence the ways in which the conditionalitycompensation nexus manifests in practice; some more subtle than others.
