Summer School in EU Law and Policy on Immigration and Asylum

Venue: Brussels, Belgium
Period: June 29 - July 10, 2015
Application deadline: June 5, 2015



The classes give a global vision of the immigration and asylum law in Europe. They are conducted by academics, among the best specialists in this field, from the member universities of the Odysseus Academic Network, which is represented in all Member States of the European Union, and by high-ranking officials from international organisations, particularly the European Commission. The Summer School provides the opportunity to live in a unique European environment and to tackle the most recent developments in this area of law and policy. It also encourages networking with around one hundred participants active in this field. Over the last 14 years, the Summer School has gathered almost 1500 people from diverse nationalities and backgrounds (national and international civil servants, NGOs' representatives, lawyers, professors, researchers, PhD candidates, judges, social workers, advanced students, etc.).
In order to enable participants in full-time employment to attend, the classes are mainly held in the afternoon, between 14.00 and 18.30. Each class is given separately in French and in English. Interested candidates are strongly advised to submit their applications by using the registration form available on the website of the Network as soon as possible because of the limited number of places available.


Applicants must have a University Bachelor’s degree or an equivalent degree of studies in Law, Political Science, European Studies or International Relations. Graduates of other disciplines (for example Sociology or Economics) will be considered depending on the content of the courses followed in order to meet the legal prerequisites required for the certificate. Applicants can also rely upon relevant professional experience (for example as a civil servant, NGO employee, etc.) which can be considered as equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree.


Participants who have followed the programme assiduously throughout the two weeks will receive a certificate of attendance specifying each of the courses followed. The programme will not demand any written work or exams, but some prior readings will be recommended.
