The European Journal of Legal Studies (EJLS) is proud to present its latest Special Issue, entitled Adjudicating Migrants' Rights: What Are European Courts Saying?

The Journal was pleased to collaborate with Guest Editors, Veronica Federico (University of Florence), Madalina Moraru (Masaryk University and Centre for Judicial Cooperation, EUI), and Paola Pannia (University of Florence) in the compilation of this timely examination of judicial approaches to migrants' rights in the European Union.

An introduction, in which the Guest Editors reflect on 'the growing but uneven role of European courts in (im)migration governance' is followed by an analysis of the 'judicial diplomacy' exercised by the CJEU in its engagement with the right to be heard. The remaining contributions to this Special Issue, meanwhile, are devoted to the critical examination of how courts in four EU Member States – France, Greece, Italy, and Poland – have handled migrants' rights. The Issue aims to enable the reader to understand and navigate a highly complex and fragmented field, in which the role and competences of the judiciary are constantly challenged.

The Special Issue is available open access via the Journal's website here.
