Past events at IEE-ULB – Summer 2014

Summer School “European Union Law and Policy on Immigration and Asylum”, 30 June – 11 July 2014, ULB, Brussels


The aim of the Summer School was to provide its participants with an comprehensive understanding of the immigration and asylum policy of the European Union from a legal point of view. The programme was organised by the “Academic Network for Legal Studies on Immigration and Asylum in Europe”, founded with the financial support of the Odysseus Programme of the European Commission and co-ordinated by the Institute for European Studies of the Université Libre de Bruxelles. The course provided both the opportunity to live in a unique European environment, as Brussels hosts numerous European and international organisations and their research facilities, and to take part in an intellectually stimulating experience in a group of several tens of participants specialised in the area of asylum and immigration from all over Europe. The classes were conducted by academics from the universities co-operating in the Network which is represented in twenty-seven Member States of the European Union, Switzerland and Norway and more, and by high ranking officials from international organisations, particularly the European Commission. Each class was given both in French and in English. Participation in the Summer School was rewarded with a certificate of attendance.
