"Discussing asylum, Migration and the Future of Europe" - Catherine Woollard, the Secretary General of the European Council of Refugees and Exiles
The talk will explore recent legal and political developments in the fields of asylum and migration in Europe. It will assess responses to the political crisis on these issues that took place during 2015/2016, and which continues in some parts of Europe. It will look at ECRE's alternatives to both the status quo and to reform proposals under discussion at EU and national levels. Finally, it will cover the likely impact on asylum and migration policies of forthcoming events, including Brexit and the European Parliament elections, and possible future scenarios.
