The publication of the Commission’s agenda on migration comes at a difficult time in humanitarian and political terms. In this context, the Juncker Commission faced a sensitive challenge because it needed to act quickly but had only limited room for manoeuvre.

This Viewpoint by António Vitorino and Yves Pascouau underlines the positive aspects of the new agenda as far as solidarity and long-term vision are concerned on three key issues:

1. Solidarity by constraint: an innovative and politically active agenda
2. Confirming the existing situation: a pragmatic agenda
3. The long-term vision: an agenda usefully expanding the debate on migration
