  • When: 30-31 March 2020
  • Where: Maastricht

The Maastricht Centre for European Law at the University of Maastricht is launching a call for papers for an interdisciplinary workshop on Migration and EU Borders. This workshop forms part of a series of four workshops within the EU-funded Jean Monnet NOVA project. It aims to bring together scholars from diverse disciplines such as law, humanities, social sciences, and migration studies, alongside practitioners. 

We specifically encourage papers on the following topics:

-Current state of (the common) EU migration and asylum policy 20 years after the Tampere conclusions and future developments.

-Institutional dynamics in EU migration and asylum policy, including the role of the European Parliament and other actors such as civil society organizations and EU agencies.

-The fundamental rights dimension of the advancement of the European Agenda on Migration.

-Norms, rule of law, and democratic governance of EU migration and asylum policy, including ideas of equitable ‘burden-sharing’ of asylum-seekers, the EU plans for relocation and resettlement, and the role of the Court of Justice of the European Union.

-EU migration and asylum policy in a global context, including the recent adoption of the two UN Compacts on migration and refugees, other global regulation attempts, as well as policies of traditional countries of immigration and resettlement such as Australia.

-Externalisation of EU border management, including the driving forces and legal effects of EU external migration policy as well as the parallel action of Member States and the issues arising from this externalization under EU institutional law and international law

Please submit your paper proposals by 10 January 2020.
