Abstract/Description: These observations arise from a study on responses by national, regional and municipal government in the European Union to the service needs of migrants with irregular status. The study, still in progress, set out to establish what level of access to health care and education is provided across the EU as a matter of national law; how policy on these and other services varies regionally and locally; and why this provision is made. It has, to date, involved 74 interviews across 13 EU states and 20 cities. This briefing focuses on some emerging findings on experiences at city level. The quotes are from city policy makers and service providers.
