Description

Seminar “Connecting Values in the European Governance of Migration: Dynamics of solidarity” is taking place in Utrecht on 25th of October 2019, starting from 13:00h. At the event, leading experts in migration studies from the Netherlands, United States of America, Italy, and Hungary will present their research and address some of the most topical issues in the field of migration.

The recent controversy around the case of Carola Rackete, who - among a heated political debate in (social) media - was released from her arrest for docking a migrant rescue ship without authorization in the port of Lampedusa with 42 migrants on board, raises once again the urgent questions of the legal and moral consequences of solidarity to migrants.

The new book of prof. dr. Dina Siegel, titled Dynamics of Solidarity. Consequences of the 'refugee crisis' on Lesbos (2019) shows how the euphoric and warm-hearted welcome of refugees by the islanders in the early days of the crisis turned into disappointment and indifference. In many receiving countries the questions of solidarity, moral dilemmas, legal obstacles and practical solutions remain unsolved and understudied.

These issues will be discussed and explored by experts participating in our seminar organized by Utrecht University, under the umbrella of RENFORCE (Utrecht Center for Regulation and Enforcement in Europe).
