Migration and Asylum in Europe and EU-Canada Relations

January 2010 - October 2011

This project studies EU-Canada cooperation on migration and asylum policies. It aims at providing a better understanding of the conceptual, political, sociological and legal elements and dilemmas characterizing the development of common European public responses around these issues, and their implications for the relationship between liberty and security in EU-Canada relations. The project aims at bringing together a network of universities and academics from Canada and Europe in order to jointly examine the ongoing transformations affecting these policies and reflect about the development of more comprehensive framework of cooperation from the perspective of human rights and policy coherency.
