Has the so-called refugee crisis been called to an end? If so, at what price? Are the mechanisms deployed by the EU to enforce its borders fully legal in light of EU law and the European Convention on Human rights? Is there any alternative for the EU and its member states in dealing with people trying to enter the EU to apply for a protection including humanitarian visas, humanitarian corridors and wider resettlement programs? Is the long-term perspective outlined in the UN-endorsed 2018 Global Compact for Migration likely to bring solutions? These are the questions we hope to discuss in our first event of the year with Prof. Cathryn Costello (Oxford University and Hertie School), Prof. François Crépeau (McGill University) and Prof. Patrick Weil (Yale Law School).
