Migration is a wide and complex policy field to follow. Our focus in COFACE is especially on highlighting the family perspective in migration, since migration policies are often centred on the individual and do not consider the family ties and family life of individuals. Economic, labour and circular migration is an important phenomenon that cannot be neglected: for example, it is more and more common to see a member of the family moving to another country and leaving their family in the country of origin. COFACE advocates for migration policies to consider the family dimension and family ties that migrants have with their family members and believes that families should be supported, if they decide to live transnationally or to re-unite through family reunification with no discrimination of individuals or of family form.
