"Bureaucrats as Lobbyists"

-

Location: 1030 Jenkins Nanovic Halls

About the Lecture

Europe’s Policies Toward Refugees: Pressures, Contradictions, and Consequences

In 2015, over a million migrants and asylum-seekers arrived in Europe, leading to a crisis in the international refugee system, to soaring tensions within the European Union and to the rise of hardline anti-immigrant parties in almost all European countries.  Europe now struggles to reconcile its liberal democratic values with political pressures to stem the flow of immigrants and asylum-seekers.  European refugee policies are not merely debated in the halls of power in Brussels, Berlin and Rome.  They have real human consequences as evidenced by the thousands of deaths in the Mediterranean Sea in the past few years.  This presentation will explore the pressures, contradictions and potential consequences of European policies toward those arriving on its borders in search of safety.  …
