In recent years, few topics have generated as much interest, controversies, and questions, as the one of migration. If you are working in migration-related affairs within the European region, you rightly have the simple question: What is the EU’s latest legislative and policy responses to the recent migration crisis?

In this seminar, you will get a complete understanding of EU laws and policies related to asylum and immigration.

You will get in-depth insights about the key issues related to recent migration issues, as well as the European and national responses to them. You will know how policies about asylum regulations are formulated in a crisis, the challenges of developing these policies, and how these challenges encompass broader questions about Europe’s future, identity, and responsibility.

  • The policy considerations and legal concepts related to asylum law, as developed in the European Union’s Area of Freedom Security and Justice
  • The core principles and concepts of asylum and refugee law
