The Dutch and (Future) EU Multilayered Regulation of the Admission of TCN Entrepreneurs
by Dr. Tesseltje de Lange (University of Amsterdam)
MGSoG/UNU-MERIT Migration Seminar in collaboration with Maastricht Centre for Citizenship, Migration and Development (MACIMIDE)
Abstract: The purpose of this seminar is twofold: its first aim is to present the multilayered governance of the EU’s and EU member states existing but diffused and little-studied, legal instruments applying to the admission into the EU of third country national (TCN) entrepreneurs. Secondly, it aims to present some thoughts for debate on the harmonization of national laws applying to the admission of TCN entrepreneurs, most using a ‘national economic interest’ test of sorts. Such a test is designed as a points based system in the Netherlands and aims to attract talented TCN entrepreneurs. The paper fills a gap in eempirical research on the migration of TCN entrepreneurs.
