On 28 April 2016, the Natolin (Warsaw) campus of the College of Europe welcomed Dr Emmanuel COMTE from the European University Institute, who presented a workshop titled "The Formation of the European Migration Regime" organized by the European Civilization Chair.
This workshop provided students with a deeper understanding of current debates related to migration at the European level. It dealt with the origins of the free movement of persons within the European Union, the development of a European citizenship, but also with the management of migration flows with the rest of the world, and explained the political strategies that have driven those evolutions.
