The European Union and Russia are strategic partners, cooperating on a wide range of issues. One of the areas of cooperation is the Migration Dialogue, which is the part of the Common Space of Freedom, Security and Justice. The Migration Dialogue covers different aspects of migration policy, which are of mutual interest to the parties. One of these fields is the integration of migrants. The Integration of migrants is not at the top of the EU-Russia cooperation Agenda. Indeed, the effectiveness of EU-Russia cooperation in migration depends on how the national systems for the adaptation and integration of migrants is developed. The aim of this article is to examine EU and Russian legislation, concerning the legal status of migrants and their integration into host societies. On the basis of this analysis ways forward for EU-Russian cooperation in this field might be identified. A separate question is how Russia could use EU legislation and the EU’s experience in integration matters in order to improve internal legislation.
