edited by Youssef Cassis and Dariusz Wójcik

In the last 10 years the banking world has witnessed two epochal events with potential to redraw the map of international financial centres: the 2008 financial crisis, and Brexit. But has this map actually changed, or will it in the foreseeable future?

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.
