How do third-country nationals access the territory of European Union and Schengen states? Which rules apply to them, how are these rules and related policies designed, by whom, and how are they applied across different operational contexts? To what extent does the governance of entry in the European Union comply with the political commitments to safe and legal pathways for international protection and for migration outlined in the United Nations Global Compacts for Migrants and for Refugees?
9 maart 2020
13:00 - 17:00
With a view to contributing to the discussion on the EU’s “New Pact on Migration and Asylum”, the workshop examines these questions and presents the results of research undertaken by Work Package 1 on “Entry Governance” of the Advancing Alternative Migration Governance (AdMiGov) project, funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
Presentations will examine how access is framed through the law and political economy of entry governance. They will also discuss how access effectively takes place, looking at operational case studies conducted at the air (Belgium), land (Poland) and sea (Greece) external borders of the European Union.
Participants are kindly asked to register by Tuesday 3rd of March midnight at the latest, using the following link:
