    Debate (in French) "Où atterrir ? Comment s’orienter en politique"

    Sciences Po, Salle de Conférences, 56, rue Jacob, 75006 Paris

    Dans Face à Gaïa (2015) Bruno Latour alertait sur l’émergence d’un nouveau régime climatique. Dans Où atterrir ? (2017), il fait du dérèglement climatique, associé à la dérégulation et à l’explosion des inégalités, l’enjeu géopolitique majeur. Face à ces défis deux attitudes sont possibles : le déni, comme l’illustre le retrait de Donald Trump de l’accord de Paris sur le climat, le 1er juin 2017. Ou la réinvention du politique, de l’Europe et d’un monde commun. Comment s’orienter dans ce nouveau paysage ? Où atterrir ? Que faire ? Telles sont les questions auxquelles l’auteur tente de répondre.

    par Bruno Latour(Emeritus Professor at Sciences Po).

    College of Europe, Bruges Campus, Dijver 11 8000 Bruges

    Taking stock of the tools, best practices and challenges in the field of migration and asylum in Europe

    In the coming years, the European Union (institutions, Member States, national parliaments, EU agencies, regions, etc.) should mobilise its resources and have its legislative, diplomatic, financial, security and humanitarian instruments drive a global strategy.

    To this end, for those working, researching or purely interested in this important policy it is critical to review, extend and update the knowledge and understanding of the  instruments, best practices and tools on the current European migration and asylum policy.

    The programme, therefore, includes an overview of the main legal instruments for migration management at EU level, as well as its main actors. Participants will reflect upon and understand implementation challenges that might arise when using these instruments at national level.

    Linking theory to immediate practice, this three-day seminar incorporates interactive presentations on the technical content, practical case studies in small groups and feedback sessions.
