What is this course about?
The primary objective of the training is to explain the policy considerations and legal concepts related to asylum law as developed in the European Union’s Area of Freedom Security and Justice. The course primarily aims to examine the core principles, concepts and some EU specific institutions related to asylum and refugee law as evolved in the EU’s Common European Asylum System (CEAS). This will be complemented with an introduction to policy considerations and legal concepts related to regular and irregular migration.

The training will explain the challenges of policy formulation and regulation of asylum matters and it is within this context the training seeks to specifically address the EU’s new legislative and policy responses to the current ‘migration crisis’. A crisis which does not simply pose a challenge in itself but also entail much broader questions about Europe’s future, identity and responsibility. Participants attending the course will have a distinguished understanding of:
•    EU law and policy related to asylum and migration
•    The key issues pertinent to the recent ‘migration crisis’
•    The European and national responses to the ‘migration crisis’

Who will benefit most?
practitioners dealing with aspects of European integration, government officials, legal practitioners, administrators and officers from EU institutions and agencies.
