This chapter presents the concluding remarks derived from three main strands of analysis: theoretical debate, conceptual and institutional analysis and comparative analysis. Accordingly, the research findings examine the relevance of current theoretical debates and also consider a number of shortcomings in explaining the general framework concerning EU policy externalization in general. The comparative analysis between Turkey and Morocco indicates that the debate over the EU’s externalization of its immigration policy is more likely to be perceived as shifting the burden of keeping unwanted migrants onto non-member transit countries, rather than sharing the burden with them. Finally, the chapter provides some policy suggestions for their future cooperation prospect on migration management.
