THE GLOBAL GOVERNANCE OF IRREGULAR MIGRATION AND ASYLUM: UNIVERSAL NORMS, TRANSNATIONAL CHALLENGES, REGIONAL ACTORS

Dates:

  Add to Calendar 2014-06-30 9:00 2014-06-30 18:00 Europe/Paris THE GLOBAL GOVERNANCE OF IRREGULAR MIGRATION AND ASYLUM: UNIVERSAL NORMS, TRANSNATIONAL CHALLENGES, REGIONAL ACTORS

This workshop focuses on the global governance of irregular migration and asylum by concentrating on three sets of issues.
First, it looks at how patterns of irregular migration and asylum play out and indeed are formed regionally, within regional systems of human mobility (e.g. within the South to North Mediterranean system, East to West European migration system, the Eurasian system, the Pacific system and so on). It looks at the size, nature and direction of such flows and the challenges they raise for the control of irregular migration and the management of asylum.
Second, it looks at the governance networks created in each migration/asylum system, considering not only the related policies adopted by affected countries within a migration system, but taking also into account the role of other actors besides states that may have an important role to play in this, notably international organisations (IOs) and new modes of governance within them, or also local or transnational non-governmental organisations and advocacy groups, as well as regional institutions like the European Union. The workshop particularly investigates how these different stakeholders (states, international organisations, regional institutions like the EU, non-state actors like local or indeed large transnational NGOs or advocacy groups) in different migration and asylum systems define the challenge of irregular migration and asylum, what norms they evoke e.g. universal human rights and refugee norms for asylum vs. universal or more regional perspectives on migration, the prerogative of nation-states vs. the human rights of migrants and asylum seekers.
Thirdly the workshop engages with international law and human rights norms to see how they contribute to or are being sidelined when shaping these governance networks. Special attention is paid to the interaction between universal norms of human rights and international law and the role of different stakeholders in these governance networks.
