Certificate in “European Law on Immigration and Asylum”, 5 September 2014 – 12 July 2015, Universite Libre de Bruxelles
The aim of this programme was to provide itsparticipants with an in-depth understanding of the legal rules on immigration and asylum adopted by the European Union. The courses also had a comparative dimension and cover the internal laws of the Member States, in particular the way they transpose EU directives. This programme was of interest to all persons who wish to acquire a special knowledge in immigration and asylum law, for instance civil servants, advocates or persons working for
NGOs, and in particular researchers, PhD students and other students, who frequently confront the complex legal dimension of immigration and asylum in their work or studies. This programme was organised by the “Academic Network for Legal Studies on Immigration and Asylum in Europe” founded in 1999 with the support of the Odysseus Programme of the European Commission and co-ordinated by the Institute for European Studies of Brussels University (ULB). The course provided the opportunity to live in a unique European environment, with instructors coming from academic institutions in many different Member States as well as from the EU institutions, and to take part in an intellectually stimulating experience as part of a group of 20-40 participants specialising in the area of immigration and asylum with different backgrounds from all over Europe. Professional networking within and outside this group was encouraged by the organisers.
