Objectives of the seminar
The seminar aims at exploring in an interdisciplinary manner the link between justice, inequality, and inclusion, more specifically from a European perspective and with a focus on migration in the European Union. It will deal with three main issues:
- Access to justice for migrants and asylum-seekers in Europe: What is the scope of the rights that migrants and asylum seekers should enjoy? What are the various means and requirements under regional, international, and national law to ensure the enforcement of those rights and provide remedies in case of violation?
- Which barriers do migrant workers face in accessing justice, including the ability to assert legal rights in the workplace and to access to mechanisms for legal redress or remedy?
- What does access to justice mean for children in the context of child refugees and migrants (especially unaccompanied minors and young asylum seekers)?
