The primary objective of the training is to explain the policy considerations and legal concepts related to asylum law as developed in the European Union’s Area of Freedom, Security and Justice. The course primarily aims to examine the core principles, concepts and some EU-specific institutions related to asylum and refugee law as evolved in the EU’s Common European Asylum System (CEAS). This will be complemented with an introduction to policy considerations and legal concepts related to regular and irregular migration. The training will explain the challenges of policy formulation and regulation of asylum matters, and it is within this context that the training seeks to specifically address the EU’s new legislative and policy responses to the current migration crisis. A crisis that does not simply pose a challenge in itself, but also entails much broader questions about Europe’s future, identity and responsibility.
