The “Migration crisis” has still a central position in the public debate nowadays, despite having reached its peak in 2015: the topic is at the heart of the European elections campaign and benefits from a relatively important media coverage. But “migration” is not only words or pictures, it is mainly a reality for millions of people seeking protection or a better life in the European Union.
The seventh session of the Académie Notre Europe will be an opportunity to discuss migration and asylum issues and the capacity of European Member States to reconcile two objectives: reinforcing the European answer to migration and refugee flows (in terms of legal instrements, infrastructures, etc.), in conformity with human dignity and, more generally, with European values, while protecting European external borders.
