  • The EU in front of the migratory crisis

    Experts debate in the UA on the repercussions of the migrant crises for Spain


    From today until next Thursday, July 13, experts in Law and migration crises meet at the University of Alicante to address the repercussions in Spain of the current international migrant crisis. To this end, the summer course "The European Union in the face of the international migration crisis: repercussions for Spain" has started this morning, with interventions by Antonio Galiano, director of the Secretariat of International Mobility of the UA; and Jaume Ferrer, director of the course and professor of Public International Law and International Relations of the UA. The meeting, sponsored by the Interuniversity Center for European Studies, addresses topics of high interest and topicality such as the impact of armed conflicts on migration in Europe; refugee protection; what is the EU's position on the migration crisis; border management; or expulsions of immigrants.

    The debates focus on the following areas: the evolution of the international conflicts that have caused the migrant crisis (Syria); the controversial management of the migration crisis by the European Union (agreement with Turkey); and the legislative, administrative and judicial practice of Spain in this respect.

    Mr. Jaume Ferrer, director of the course, stated that "the response to the serious migration crisis is the full respect for human rights; the increase of material and human resources; the reinforcement of foreign and security policy for the resolution of conflicts, and the implementation of a commercial and development cooperation policy in third world states.
