The Jean Monnet Chair in EU External Action of the University of Salamanca organises in cooperation with CEPS a Workshop on the external dimensions of migration policies in the EU, under the direction of Profs. Juan Santos Vara (University of Salamanca) and Sergio Carrera (CEPS/Sciences Po). Since the University of Salamanca will celebrate in 2018 its eighth centenary many international conferences and events focused on current international problems will take place in Salamanca. This workshop aims to bring together scholars, young researchers and practitioners for discussing the main issues and challenges inherent to the intersection between EU migration, borders and asylum policies and foreign affairs, i.e. the external dimensions of EU migration policies.
