DUE TO OVER-SUBSCRIPTION REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS NOW CLOSED.

This lunchtime policy seminar aims to critically assess the recent developments in the field of EU migration policy. There will be two focal points in the discussions.

First, the European Agenda on Migration that was recently presented by the European Commission will be examined, by focusing on the following questions:

  •  To want extent does the Agenda address needs in the area of EU migration policy?
  •  What gaps and challenges can be identified, and what suggestions could be proposed?

Second, the different operational EU activities in the Mediterranean will be discussed, by focusing on these sets of questions:

  • What is the role of surveillance and SAR in these activities, and in particular in the Frontex joint operations Triton and Poseidon?
  •  What issues are generated by further military involvement in this area, most notably through the envisaged CSDP mission in the Mediterranean?
