Question for written answer P-003392-19
to the Commission
Rule 138
Christine Anderson (ID)

 Subject:  Quota for women under the EU-Turkey migration agreement

The EU’s agreement with Turkey stipulates that migrants who have entered the EU illegally from Turkey should be sent back there and, in return, that the same number of people should be allowed to migrate legally from Turkey to the EU.

Does the Commission know whether this arrangement means that a person granted legal right of entry in exchange for the return of an illegal migrant is to be of the same sex as the returnee? Can it give a breakdown of how many people have entered the EU each year under this agreement since 2015, by numbers of people who entered illegally and then were returned, their age and gender, and numbers of people who entered legally, their age and gender.

Since the majority of migrants who have entered the EU illegally by land (via the Balkan route) are young men, could the Commission support a women’s quota regulation, whereby for each illegal male migrant returned to Turkey, a female migrant is permitted to enter the EU legally?
