From Migration Crisis to Refugee Crisis in Europe: securitization priorities vs integration policies?

Dates: 01/18/2016 Dates: 01/18/2016 Times: 18:00 - 19:30 Location: LSE, Canada Blanch Room, COW 1.11, Cowdray House, 6 Portugal Street, WC2A 2HJ

This seminar is organised by LSE’s Hellenic Observatory

lseThe presentation’s objective is to uncover the perplexity of migration/refugee issues that seem to trouble Europe, while at the same time to touch upon the antinomies of EU migration and refugee policies. My analysis is from a southern European perspective and aims at stressing the social and economic aspects rather than the political aspects of the theme.
