UACES Arena - 'En attendant Godot' or the EU Law Limits to Integration Conditions for Migrants

Brussels, Belgium

6 June 2012

Speaker: Diego Acosta Arcarazo, University of Sheffield

This event is part of the UACES Arena, which is organised by UACES and Edelman|The Centre in cooperation with the University of Kent at Brussels. UACES Arena invites leading scholars to challenge conventional wisdom in the policy-making world and to present new ideas for a changing Europe.

Integration of third-country nationals is high on the political agenda of many Member States. The approach, meaning and limits of integration of migrants in European Union law is under discussion. The presentation will be focused on the academic debates around these conditions as well as on the role of Member States, Commission and National Courts in the interpretation of the possible European Law limits to integration conditions under the long-term residence and family reunification Directives. Some Member States have implemented them, as well as the frequent legislative amendments in order to make them harsher. It opens all sorts of questions, not only legal ones. It is remarkable how, despite the rapid legislative amendments, some Member States claim a stability into which the migrants would have to integrate. How valuable are certain integration conditions when confronted with general principles of Union law, such as respect for fundamental rights, proportionality, effectiveness or non-discrimination? What are the different positions on the plate?

Please note that this event is free to attend.
