The conference focuses on the mobility of asylum seekers and refugees within European borders, and aims to explore issues such as drivers leading asylum seekers and refugees to move to other European countries, available legal channels for movement, and obstacles posed by the “system of (im)mobility” created by the current legal framework.
Why do asylum seekers and refugees need mobility in Europe? What legal issues do they face when they want to move to other EU countries? What is the existing jurisprudence at European level and what is its impact on the current system? What needs to be changed at European, national and local level and how can reform be realistically achieved?
The aim of the conference is to deepen participants’ understanding of the current European legislation’s adverse impact on the mobility of asylum seekers and refugees, its interplay with local policies, and identify proposals for sustainable reform.
The programme will feature presentations by legal and academic experts, as well as NGO and political representatives. There will also be interactive workshops.
Alessia Di Pascale will present on : “The state of play of the negotiations on the reform of the Common European Asylum System”
