July 4, The Hague (the Netherlands)
Using Human Security as a Legal Framework to analyse the Common European Asylum System
The conference is the second event falling within the current CLEER (Centre for the Law of EU External Relations) research project titled ‘Human Security as a new operational framework for enhancing Human Rights protection in the EU’s Security & Migration Policies’. The conference will address a specific ambit in which human rights, EU security and foreign policy meet: EU asylum and migration policy.
The conference will address the role that Human Security can play in relation to the legal and political toolbox with which the EU responds to humanitarian crises such as conflicts and natural disasters. It shall take stock of recent developments in EU legislation, jurisprudence and doctrine whilst analysing the extent to which Human Security discourses can enrich protection standards within the Common European Asylum System (CEAS).
