edited by Youssef Cassis and Dariusz Wójcik

In this volume,  leading economic historians, geographers, and other social scientists focus on post-2008 developments in the key international financial centres of New York, London, Paris, Geneva, Zurich, Frankfurt, Singapore, Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, and Tokyo. 

Illegally staying in the EU: an analysis of illegality in EU migration law

by Benedita Menezes Queiroz

This volume, the published version of an EUI thesis, reveals not only the fragmentation of legal statuses in EU migration law but also the more general ill-fitting and unsatisfactory categorisation of migrants. Following her analysis, the author proposes a corrective rationale for the regulation of illegality through access to legality. She also provides a number of normative suggestions to remedy deficiencies arising from the supranational framing of illegality currently in place.
