The study addresses the issue of EU States’ migration policies, with a par- ticular focus on the factors contributing to their design. The analysis was carried out with the standard method of associations: hypotheses were obtained through a deductive procedure and submitted to corroboration through the construction of multiple linear regression models that compare three time points. Among the results obtained, it is worth mentioning the insignificant effect on the type of migration policies exercised by the socio-demographic factors closely related to migration flows. Instead, the degree of openness of States to immigration is influenced by cultural, economic and social factors.
