SOLM242 EU Immigration Law (A21)

Module Description

The module will examine the key legal issues underpinning EU Immigration Law as a distinct field of law. The module will examine a number of central themes in law and governance of EU Immigration policy in Europe's Area of Freedom, Security and Justice. These include the development of the Common European Asylum System through an examination of the operation of the Dublin Regulation; EU law on irregular migration and the criminalisation and securitisation of migration; border control and border management in EU law (including the law of the external border and the Schengen area); the role of EU agencies in the field of immigration law (including FRONTEX and the European Asylum Support Agency-EASO); and relations with third countries and the external dimension of EU immigration law. The constitutional and human rights implication of European integration in the field will be fully explored.
