The Odysseus Network is relaunching its one-year certificate. The aim of this programme is to provide its participants with an in-depth understanding of the EU migration and asylum law. It will be of interest to all persons who wish to acquire a specialised knowledge in immigration and asylum law, and in particular civil servants, researchers, PhD students, lawyers, and persons working for EU institutions, International Organisations, and NGOs, all of whom frequently confront the complex legal dimension of immigration and asylum in their work or studies.
The courses are given in English in Brussels at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings throughout the year. Participants are supposed to attend physically the classes, but it will also be possible to follow them live on skype upon distance. Several specific gatherings will be organised in Brussels throughout the year for participants following the courses from abroad.
This course provides the opportunity to live in a unique European environment, with well-known professors coming from academic institutions in different Member States as well as speakers from the EU institutions, and to take part in an intellectually stimulating experience as part of a group of about 20 participants specialising in the area of immigration and asylum with different backgrounds from all over Europe. Participants will be involved in research activities and will, in particular, be trained to draft a final paper to be published on the Odysseus blog. Professional networking within and outside the group will be encouraged by the organisers. Participants will receive a university certificate if they follow successfully the programme, including some written or oral exams.
