Summer School Course 2018

Citizenship and Migration: Europe’s 21st century challenges

6-10 August 2018

In this summer course we unravel 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 or the right to be treated equally. While these issues are intrinsic to western understandings of what it means to be a citizen of a nation state, the EU dimension brings new challenges to the constitutional arrangements that legally define the relationship between people and administration within a given territory. After taking this course, you will be able to better understand the legal and political issues at stake in discussions concerning, for example, the attempts of Syrian refugees to reach and enter 'fortress' Europe, the role of borders in shaping practices of migration or discussions about the fundamental character of free movement of persons and attempts to redefine its meaning and implications. The course is open to enthusiastic students keen to learn more about citizenship and migration in Europe.

The programme of the 2018 edition of the ‘Citizenship and Migration’ summer course is here (pdf, 1,7 MB) available.
