Migration to the EU: how to coordinate Member State action?
In the last years asylum applications in the EU have drastically increased. For some time, Member States have been open about their struggle to cope with increasing arrivals of migrants. But how exactly does the EU asylum system work? And why is it currently in the process of being reformed?
This ASIBA Masterclass will focus on the legal regime established at the EU level, to coordinate Member State action on migration issues. It will include a brief description of some of the recent decisions of the European Court of Justice, concerning, in particular, the tools and mechanisms in place to protect unaccompanied children seeking asylum in the EU.
Students will also be presented with the opportunity to learn more about EU law in general, as well as about the functioning of the EU court system and other EU institutions.
All views expressed during the session are personal.
