EU Migration Policy in the Neighborhood: New Frontiers?

November 10, 2015 at 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM

Location:482 MacOdrum Library
Key Contact:Ottilie Grisdale

Please join us on Tuesday November 10, 2015  for our upcoming event on “EU Migration Policy in the Neighbourhood: New Frontiers?” The event will take place from 2:30-4:00pm in the  MacOdrum Library  (Room 482, 4th floor in the Discovery Centre). 

The European Neighbourhood Policy was overhauled in 2012 following a series of dramatic events developing in the EU’s neighbourhood. One of the policy areas most influenced by the changing global context was migration policy. But has EU migration policy in the neighbourhood really changed? If so, what type of change can we talk about? In this talk Dr. Agnieszka Weinar will present evidence and arguments explaining the nuances of change/continuity in the EU’s migration policy towards its neighbours. She will discuss historical perspectives and recent developments on core migration policy tools such as visa policy, re-admission policy, and mobility partnerships.

Dr. Agnieszka Weinar is a Marie Curie Fellow hosted by EURUS and the Metropolis Project; she joins us from the European University Institute in Florence. Her research focuses on the international dimension of migration policy and more specifically on the Europeanization of migration policies in the EU.
