LAVENEX Sandra & TRAUNER Florian - Immigration, Asylum and Border Management in the EU (20h)

Migration policy in the EU has developed from a peripheral aspect of intergovernmental cooperation into a focal point of European integration. Long confined to the exclusive authority of sovereign states, the control over the entry of non-nationals into the territory and their integration into the population has shifted upwards to supranational rule and outwards to the sphere of foreign relations. This course will focus on the patterns and dynamics of the European integration process in this sensitive field in its global context. Throughout, we will put the emphasis on the institutional relationship between state authority and supranational/international rule as well as on the substance of this cooperation in terms of the balance between migrant’s rights and state prerogatives. // ECTS Card
