Law

Introduction to EU Asylum and Migration Law

This course will explore the challenges of asylum policy, the EU's response to the 2015–2016 migration crisis, and its approach to the recent Ukrainian refugee crisis. It will also examine if the New Pact on Migration and Asylum offers a fresh start.

About this course

The course addresses two complementary areas of EU law. Firstly, it explains the policy considerations and legal concepts related to asylum law as developed in the EU’s Common European Asylum System (CEAS). Secondly, the course addresses other aspects of the European Union’s Area of Freedom, Security and Justice relevant for understanding EU migration law in the broader sense. (Schengen, human smuggling, regular migration of third country nationals).

The training will explain the challenges of policy formulation and regulation of asylum matters, and it is within this context that the course will address the EU’s difficulties in responding to the large-scale movements of 2015-2016, as well as the EU’s approach to tackling the recent Ukrainian ‘refugee crisis’. A look at the New Pact on Migration and Asylum will reveal if it can serve as a new start. The much broader questions about the EU’s future, identity and responsibility will also be addressed.

What will you learn:

At the end of this course you will have a good understanding of

  • EU legal and policy concepts related to asylum and migration
  • The challenges of balancing fundamental rights protection of individuals with the principle of solidarity among Member States and the policy, legal and jurisprudential responses to these challenges

The course will combine presentations by experts and group discussions of concrete examples from the case law.

This course will equip you with the skills to envisage and analyse

  • the possible answers to the arrival of ‘mixed flows’ and the issues related to returns
  • the European and national responses to the ‘migration crises’ and the prospects of the New Pact on Migration and Asylum

Prior to the course, you will be given access to the course materials on our digital learning platform. This includes a short questionnaire, which will help us identify any specific questions you may have so we can consider as many of them as possible during the course.

Preparatory reading and materials will be available on the platform to facilitate joining the course. All course materials will be made available for the participants.

After the event, additional materials and references to relevant literature, documents and websites will be accessible on our learning platform.

Anyone interested in issues of irregular and regular migration, as well as matters of asylum, including legal practitioners, government officials, NGO staff, administrators, and officers from EU institutions and agencies.
