You want to learn about the EU’s new legislative and policy responses to the current “migration crises”, and the challenges of policy formulation and regulation of asylum matters, in a crisis, which does not simply pose a challenge in itself but also entail much broader questions about Europe’s future, identity and responsibility.

This seminar explains the policy considerations and legal concepts related to asylum law, as developed in the European Union’s Area of Freedom Security and Justice, and examines the core principles, concepts and some EU specific institutions related to asylum and refugee law as evolved in the EU’s Common European Asylum System (CEAS), complemented with an introduction to policy considerations and legal concepts related to regular and irregular migration.
