Irregular Migration in Europe. Legal and Judicial Problems Raised by the Implementation of the Return Directive

Dates:
  • Fri 19 Oct 2012 14.00 - 19.00
  • Sat 20 Oct 2012 09.30 - 13.00
  Add to Calendar 2012-10-19 14:00 2012-10-20 13:00 Europe/Paris Irregular Migration in Europe. Legal and Judicial Problems Raised by the Implementation of the Return Directive

ORGANISED BY THE CENTRE FOR JUDICIAL COOPERATION, DEPARTMENT OF LAW

Described as probably the most controversial of the European Union migration legal acts, the Return Directive not only touches upon the most politically sensitive aspects of the European migration policy; it also exposes the weaknesses of the nascent European legal migration system itself and the difficulties in its creation with the view of achieving efficiency of migration management as well as sufficient protection of migrants’ rights. Ensuring meeting minimal standards set by the directive and national standards imposed by legislative acts lies ultimately with the national courts of the Member States and judges working both independently and in collaboration with one another.

The multitude of problematic issues that arose in connection with the Return Directive and recent lapse of transposition date make the Return Directive a perfect object of the Centre for Judicial Cooperation launching event.

The judicial dialogue – the opportunities and limits its offers – will be the focus of the present workshop. The formula of the event reflects the philosophy of the Centre manifested in creation of the forum where the exchange between judges and academics takes place.

The Workshop has been conceived accordingly as the forum of exchange of experiences, practices, and solutions to the problems posed by the Return Directive. It builds on the awareness of differences manifested by various transposition strategies and problems revealed in the application and interpretation of the directive. It also looks at judicial dialogue as it takes place within and across jurisdictions. The three respective parts of the workshop have been organised in such a manner as to allow ample time for discussion encouraging each and every participant to present his/her point of view based inter alia on national practices made more illustrative by the previously distributed overview of transposition strategies chosen by the selected Member States.
