Odysseus Network OMNIA Conference | European Commission, Charlemagne Building, Rue de la Loi 170, 1000 Brussels, 10 February 2017
Beyond ‘crisis’? The State of Immigration and
Asylum Law and Policy in the EU
After the success of the 2016 Odysseus Conference on solidarity in asylum and borders policies, the 2017 Odysseus Annual Conference organised in cooperation with the European Commission’s Representation in Belgium will critically assess the developments in European Immigration and Asylum Law and Policy during the year 2016, as well as casting a look into 2017.
After a plenary session devoted to the kind of crisis we are experiencing and an analysis of the importance of European values for the migration and asylum policies from a legal point of view, nine interactive workshops organised in three streams will cover the following topics which are at the core of the current legal and policy debates:
Each workshop is organised by a team of leading experts coming from various universities and research centres in different EU Member States who will present cutting-edge research. Workshops will be introduced by three to four rapporteurs and commentators coming from, apart academia, EU institutions and agencies, Member States’ administrations, international organisations and NGOs. Substantial time will be allowed for discussions with the audience. High-level representatives from EU institutions and Member States will take part in the opening and closing plenary sessions.
Participation will be free of charge but preliminary online registration is required. Simultaneous translation between French, Dutch and English will be provided. Further information on the programme, including the names of speakers and the registration process for the conference, can be found here. Save the date in your agenda as the place to be for academics and practitioners working in the area of migration and asylum in Europe!
