Indisputable importance, significance, growing economic value of migration in the European Union put a process of migrants’ flows managing in core position both of national policies of the EU countries and of entire association. Due to diversity and multivectorness of migration dynamics in the Old World, a complexity of regional migration policies is non-doubly obvious.

The paper theoretically justifies an adequacy of the EU migration regimes as a condition for effectiveness of national control over transboundary labor movement in Europe. The study proposes an original method for evaluation of migration regimes adequacy in Europe based on assessment of 26 test issues. Results of the author's methodology application led to a number of practical recommendations for the further modernization of European migration policy, as well as theoretical conclusions on scientific comparative analysis of relationships between migration regimes adequacy and national macroeconomic indicators.
