Opening Lecture of the Odysseus Summer School
2 July 2018 à 17h 00 - 19h 00
The Summer School is organised by the Odysseus Network for Legal Studies on Immigration and Asylum in Europe, which was founded in 1999 with the support of the European Commission and is coordinated by the Institute for European Studies of the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB).
This year, the Summer School will gather around 110 participants, including Ph.D. and graduate students, researchers, lecturers, EU and Member State officials, representatives from NGOs and International Organisations, lawyers, judges, social workers and more. The classes are taught by academics collaborating in the Odysseus Network, which is represented in all EU Member States, and by high-ranking officials from the European Institutions.

The Opening Lecture – which will be open to the public upon registration – will be dedicated to the burning issues of solidarity and asylum. The title evokes the image of a ‘poisoned debate’, used by French President Emmanuel Macron to describe the profound divisions among the Member States regarding relocation and the Dublin reform.
The lecture will take place just a few days after the European Council meeting of 28-29 June, where EU leaders will seek a common position on the reform of Dublin and it will represent one of the first opportunities for debate and reflection on the Council’s decisions.
