The Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam is introducing a master in International Migration and Refugee Law as of September 2015. The master track will address international migration from the perspective of international and European law, and focus on the way these legal orders function in domestic legal orders. The interplay between international, European and domestic law is a specific focus of the track.
