Marco Mazzeschi on the Status of Implementation of the Blue Card Directive (PDF)
The EU directive 2009/50 of May 29, 2009 (the "Blue Card Directive") sought to aid the EU's ability to attract qualified workers from third countries. The aim was to enhance the EU in the global market and limit brain drain, e.g., attracting non-EU students who have completed studies to stay in the EU. The Directive has achieved mixed results because other avenues to legal residence for such workers look more favorable than the Blue Card Permit.
