4/12: DAMR CMR Webinar ‘Schengen, free movement and crises’

Centre for Migration Law, Radboud University, the Netherlands
4 December 2020
Schengen, free movement and crises
Links, effects and future challenges
This webinar addresses the relationship between Schengen and the free movement regime in the context of two crises: the so-called 2015 migration crisis that led to the reintroduction of internal border controls to deal with pressures at the external borders of the EU, including secondary movements, and the 2020 Covid-19 crisis that prompted the majority of Schengen states to reintroduce internal border controls as part of their efforts to contain the spread of the pandemic. If crises are also productive moments that lead to new forms of governance and new practices, what sort of mobility regime is coming out of the 2015 and 2020 crises?
