Philosophy of Migration and Asylum

The so-called “refugee crisis” has given new impulse to the already heated debate on migration and asylum. With this workshop series, the Institute of Philosophy of the NOVA University of Lisbon invites to reassess key topics such as the right to free movement of persons vs. the states’ “right to exclude”, migrants’ and asylum seekers’ rights and duties, the concepts of integration and inclusion of third country nationals, and the state of the Common European Asylum System.

All welcome. Link on the sidebar.
