Prague Summer School on Immigration and Asylum Law

organized within the initiative 4EU++

Organizers: Charles University Faculty of Law, in cooperation with the University of Warsaw and University of Copenhagen

PhD and Graduate Seminar on the Common European Asylum System

2nd – 6th September 2019, Prague


While the peak of the migration ‘crisis’ in Europe might be over, many challenges lie ahead. What are the lessons learnt, and how has this shaped the future of the EU migration agenda? What measures should EU Member States consider to respond more effectively to future migration flows? The aim of this 5-day PhD seminar on immigration and asylum law is to critically reflect upon legal aspects of so called ‘refugee crisis’ in Europe and the measures adopted to respond at the EU, international and national levels in the last three years. The primary, but not exclusive, focus being the Common European Asylum System.

Who should attend

The PhD and Graduate Seminar is a key element of the 4EU+ project creating a regular summer school on migration and asylum law at Charles University in collaboration with Warsaw University and Copenhagen University. Participants are drawn from PhD researchers in law and graduate students interested in legal aspects of EU immigration or asylum policies from any of the three collaborating universities. The sessions will be held in English.
