We are delighted to invite you to the next Odysseus Annual Conference, “Beyond ‘Crisis’? The State of Immigration and Asylum Law and Policy in the EU”, to be held in Brussels on Friday, 10 February 2017, at the European Commission. Bringing together legal experts, policy makers from EU institutions and Agencies, Member States, international organisations and NGOs, this event is an opportunity to critically assess the developments in the field in 2016 and cast a look as to possible trends in 2017.

Unique in the diversity of the topics it covers, the conference also offers an in-depth programme along three different content streams: Cooperation between Member States, Protection of Persons and Management of Migration Flows. Each stream includes three different workshops given by experts in the topic and commentators from different professional backgrounds, all the while providing ample time for a fruitful discussion with the audience. While the streams have an internal coherence, participants are free to choose workshops from different streams.

The organisers invite all persons interested to attend the conference and visit the webpage. Simultaneous translation between French, Dutch and English will be provided.

Participation is free of charge, but registration is required. For further information and in case of questions, please contact: odysseusomnia@ulb.ac.be
