The EU Global Strategy called for the overcoming of the fragmentation of external policies relevant to migration, stated the importance of making different external policies and instruments migration-sensitive, and envisaged an improvement in the consistency between external and internal policies. Nonetheless, the adoption of a joined-up approach to migration has often been hindered by disagreement among member states, by recurrent instability in origin and transit countries, and by the unfortunate politicisation of migration.
