13.04.2023 : JMCM Partnership Conference – Anna Triandafyllidou / Ndeye Dieynaba Ndiaye / Catherine Xhardez / Luca Sollai
Round table organized by CERIUM, ERIQA and JMCM:
Europe is facing increasing pressure with regard to migration issues. The volume of arrivals and asylum applications has increased sharply since last year, notably due to the war in Ukraine and migration flows across the Mediterranean. This situation has highlighted once again the difficulties and limitations of Europe’s migration policy, especially in the management of crisis situations, which remains largely the prerogative of States. The participants of the roundtable will explain the modalities of intervention of the EU for the resolution of crises, as well as their application in the different national contexts.

- Ndeye Dieynaba Ndiaye, UQAM, Department of Legal Sciences – The European Right of Asylum between Protection and Fight against Irregular Migration
