Dates:
  • Wed 14 Jun 2017 11.30 - 13.00
  Add to Calendar 2017-06-14 11:30 2017-06-14 13:00 Europe/Paris Addressing the Refugee Crisis in Europe: Protection, Vulnerability, Security

Round Table Discussion prior to the Conference on Human Dignity and the Constitutional Crisis in Europe

We invite members of the EUI community to a round table discussion on the refugee crisis in Europe, prior to our two-day conference on “Human Dignity and the Constitutional Crisis in Europe: Humanity, Democracy, Social Europe”. The aim of the discussion will be to consider 'whose' protection, vulnerability and security is/should be shaping the European response to those who have fled persecution. Is our response shaped by the perceived vulnerability of European people/culture/prosperity? And, if so, do we see the refugee as a threat to our security, rather than a vulnerable human being in need of protection? How should we reconcile the security needs of society and refugees?

Darshan Datar (LL.M researcher, EUI), Ricardo Rodrigues de Oliveira (PhD researcher, EUI) and Joshua Eve (PhD researcher at Portsmouth) will provide short opening comments.

To register please contact Agnieszka.Lempart@EUI.eu
