Overview of contents

In this course, various topics related to legal aspects of migrant and refugees protection, asylum and family reunion are considered. Namely, those who arrive on the European shores arrive without documents, sometimes without clothes and a future, still, they have rights and protections. These are established on paper while the governments’ practices record the prevalence of national needs to control immigration.

The course is divided into 3 lessons.
