Jean Monnet Network on enforcement of EU law (EULEN)

EULEN Newsroom

Roundtable ‘The EU Migration, Border Management and Asylum Reform in the Aftermath of the Refugee Crisis: Towards an Effective Enforcement?’

As part of a series of roundtables in the first phase of EULEN, the University of Deusto held an entirely virtual roundtable on 12 June 2020 entitled ‘The EU Migration, Border Management and Asylum Reform in the Aftermath of the Refugee Crisis: Towards an Effective Enforcement?’. Despite the difficulties and constraints imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, speakers from the European Parliament, the European Asylum Support Office, European Migrant Smuggling Centre (Europol), private practice and from academia shared their experiences and views. The three sessions of the roundtable covered a wide range of topics: enforcement in EU Border Management, in EU Asylum and in EU Migrant Smuggling. The insights gained from this roundtable will be used to start with the work on the second event, an academic conference in Bilbao in June 2021 preceded by a call for papers (this time hopefully in person rather than virtually).
