Summer School Course 2017

Citizenship and Migration: Europe’s 21st century challenges

7-11 August 2017

The objective of this summer course is to provide LLM and MA level students with new perspectives and insights into the meanings of citizenship and migration in the European Union. The course is designed to familiarize students with some of the most pressing issues in the field of migration law and to help them build their own perspective on how the EU should proceed in this policy field. In this course we unpack the interconnected fields of EU citizenship and EU migration law and focus on understanding the differences that exist between EU citizens and migrants in relation to topics such as, the possibility to physically enter or leave the EU, the right to work or seek education, the right to family reunification and the right to be treated equally in relation to social benefits. After taking this course, you will be able to understand better the legal issues at stake in discussions concerning, for example, the attempts of Syrian refugees to reach and enter 'fortress' Europe or discussions about the fundamental character of free movement of persons and attempts to redefine its meaning and implications.
