Europe is facing an unprecedented challenge. More than a million migrants and refugees crossed into Europe in 2015, and continue to do so in 2016, sparking a crisis as countries struggled to cope with the influx, and creating political tension and division in the EU over how best to deal with resettling people.
Join HELA and our esteemed panellists for a lunch talk discussing the legal, political and humanitarian aspects of the refugee crisis. The panellists will be:
- Professor Heaven Crawley, Chair in International Migration, Coventry University UK – will talk about the dynamics of the migration crisis, routes and the EU-Turkey deal
- Professor Dr Iris Goldner Lang, UNESCO Chair on Free Movement of People, Migration and Inter-Cultural Dialogue, University of Zagreb HLS Visiting Professor and Fullbright Fellow – will address the ways in which the crisis has affected EU law and the European Union
- Professor Saime Ozcurumez, Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science and Public Administration at Bilkent University – will provide a comparative perspective and ask what Europe can learn from the experience of other countries like Canada, US and Turkey
