Plentiful articles and policy documents regarding cooperation on migratory related topics between member states have been published. Greater solidarity and more EU concerted action, in order to unveil a European perspective, are the prevailing interpretations. Rather than devising new strategies on how to manage pressure on migratory related systems, this paper will focus on the need to use existing structures such as the European Asylum Support Office (EASO). Dialogue and cooperation, between member states regarding migratory topics as a priority on their political agendas, can be enhanced with concrete policy measures such as the ones advanced by the Task Force for the Mediterranean.
