 Abstract: Immigration to the European Union has traditionally been an issue managed by means of increasingly sophisticated border control measures. Following an incident in 2005 where a large number of immigrants were killed trying to storm the fences of the Spanish Enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla in Morocco, the EU tried to find alternative ways of dealing with the persistent influx of illegal immigration. This has led the EU to adopt the Global Approach to Migration and Mobility (GAMM) in 2011, which calls on the EU to engage in dialogue with countries of origin and transit of immigration. This thesis examines the EU’s articulation of the interaction with third countries in the GAMM and the consequences for third countries and immigrants. A poststructuralist discourse analytical approach is employed for the investigation of the dynamics of interaction between the EU and a central third country, Morocco. This allows the thesis to focus on the importance of the role of the Other, in this case third countries and immigrants, in shaping the identity of the European Self and vice versa.
Two different EU discourses are uncovered in the analysis. The ‘discourse of dialogue’ emphasises partnership with third countries, avoiding substantial Othering. The ‘discourse of objectives’ is focused on the tools to be applied in tackling illegal immigration in cooperation with third countries and embodies a principle of conditionality whereby only third countries that live up to requirements from the EU are allowed to participate in the GAMM. There is thus a discrepancy between an emphasis on dialogue and control with third countries. The discourse of Morocco is then analysed. Morocco articulates closeness with the EU and submits to the values of the EU. It is concluded that the discourse of objectives ends up taking primacy over the discourse of dialogue in the interaction with the third country, Morocco. The EU articulates a willingness to engage in dialogue with third countries in the GAMM, but never allows them any significant say in the immigration question. The result is a continuation of the control-oriented approach that the GAMM was intended to break away from.
