The Summer School has been designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the immigration and asylum policy of the EU from a legal perspective. The programme is organised by the Odysseus Academic Network under the umbrella of the Institute for European Studies of the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB). Participants in the Summer School typically include PhD and graduate students, researchers, EU and Member State officials, representatives of NGOs and International Organisations, lawyers, judges, social workers and more.
In addition to the classes, evening debates and visits to the European Institutions, the course provides an excellent opportunity to spend an intellectually stimulating fortnight and to network among a group of around one hundred fellow participants specialised in the area of asylum and immigration coming from all over Europe. The setting of the summer school in Brussels, capital of the European Union, creates a unique environment that facilitates participants’ deeper engagement with the EU institutions.
