Expert Talk: Regulating Asylum – The Challenges Behind the Reform of the Common European Asylum System

On Tuesday April 9th, 13.00-14.00 at 5A-34/38 (Newtonlaan 201), Ms. Margareta Djordjevic, (Policy Officer, Asylum Unit, DG Migration and Home Affairs, European Commission) will give an expert talk on  “Regulating Asylum: The Challenges Behind the Reform of the Common European Asylum System”.

Twenty years after the European Council of Tampere that in 1999 set out the political roadmap to establish a Common European Asylum System (CEAS), the European Union and its Member States still struggle to design a solid and future-proof system. The migratory pressure on the EU increases the need for effective responses. With more than 1 million people reaching Europe in 2015 and more than 18,000 drowning at sea since 2014 up to early 2019, a solid asylum system becomes all the more urgent. This Talk will provide an overview of the state of play of the negotiations concerning the Reform of the CEAS and the challenges it raises.

The program for the talk can be found here.
