Interim report of the Committee of State Secretaries on legal issues and challenges in the field of social security claims asserted by nationals of the EU Member States

Immigration is a complex, multi-faceted phenomenon. The Federal Government is steadfast in its support of freedom of movement, and Germany benefits from it. At the same time, we must acknowledge that immigration may also entail considerable problems. The governing parties resolved in the Coalition Agreement to address the topic and established a Committee of State Secretaries on legal issues and challenges in the field of social security claims by nationals of the EU Member States for this purpose by Cabinet resolution of 8 January 2014.
