ADGRC Seminar Series | The way to Dublin I: How Responsibility prevailed over Solidarity

Dates:
  • Tue 21 Jan 2020 15.00 - 17.00
  Add to Calendar 2020-01-21 15:00 2020-01-21 17:00 Europe/Paris ADGRC Seminar Series | The way to Dublin I: How Responsibility prevailed over Solidarity

 

On the 15th of June 1990, twelve European governments signed the Dublin Convention, the first binding agreement on asylum among EC Member States. On the eve of the 30th anniversary of the Convention, the debate about the system that derived from it is still open.

This seminar aims to retrace the dynamics that brought to the signature of the convention. The purpose of the analysis is to understand what interests and values were at stake among the Twelve; the role of single states and EC institutions (specifically the Commission and Parliament); the points of contacts and frictions with the contemporary exchanges on asylum in the Schengen group, in the Council of Europe and in the UNHCR.

Gaia Lott is a Max Weber Fellow affiliated to the History and Civilization Department at the European University Institute
