On Thursday 1 February 2018, the College of Europe welcomed the key players negotiating the reform of the Dublin Regulation, a file that lies at the heart of the proposed overhaul of the Common European Asylum System. Organised in the framework of the simulation exercise of the Department of European Political and Governance Studies, the event brought to a close the 3-week-long negotiations by the students, and provided an opportunity to both test and present the outcome of the simulation to the policy-makers involved in the real-life negotiations on the file. 

The panel of the conference was composed of the following speakers:

  • Mr Jacopo BARIGAZZI (Reporter, POLITICO);
  • Mr Stefano GRASSI (Institutional Adviser on External Aspects of Migration, Cabinet of the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker; alumnus of the College of Europe,  Walter HALLSTEIN Promotion);
  • Mr Raoul UEBERECKEN (Director, Directorate-General for Justice and Home Affairs, General Secretariat of the Council of the EU; alumnus of the College of Europe, Leonardo DA VINCI Promotion);
  • Mr Daniel SJÖBERG  (Assistant to Cecilia WIKSTRÖM, Rapporteur on the reform of Regulation 604/2013); 
  • Ms Catherine WOOLLARD (Secretary General, ECRE).
