16 May Seminar Heading to Europe (Symposium)

The year 2013 has demonstrated that the tragedy of thousands of migrants and refugees drowning on the shores of Europe is now a common occurrence.

The fate of those who perished near the Italian island of Lampedusa has brought the urgency of the situation into focus. The aim of the panel discussion is to provide an overview of the legal rules and processes applicable to migration by sea in the Mediterranean and to reflect on their wider sociological implications.

The panel discussion consists of two panels, each followed by a plenary discussion. In the first panel, legal experts working in the field of academia and at stakeholder organizations (e.g. UN Refugee Agency, Council of Europe, European Union) focus on legal aspects of boat migration in the Mediterranean. The second panel brings together scholars and practitioners with first-hand experience from transit countries (Egypt, Morrocco, Turkey and Tunesia) to discuss the sociological effects of the legal rules and processes.

The organizing partners cordially invite interested scholars, governments offcials, practitioners and advanced students to join in the panel discussion. Active participation in the discussion is strongly encouraged. Participation is free of charge.
