Abstract

The current refugee crisis is one of the biggest challenges that the European Union (EU) has faced since its creation. Rather than progressive convergence, the EU governance system in the field of migration has been characterized by increasingly conflicting dynamics of inter-national competition and incoherence across national and sub-national approaches in responding to the crisis. More substantially, despite an unprecedented academic debate on migration in Europe, there are several questions that remain underexplored. What are, for instance, similarities and differences in the legislative innovations introduced by European states to face questions of migration and integration? To what extent is the practice aligned with the normative framework? What type of institutional and legal inconsistencies do represent an obstacle to cooperation among relevant actors?  What type of practices or approaches are, on the contrary, reinforcing the basis for an effective multi-level governance of migration and integration? The aim of this panel is to collect papers to unearth, from a theoretical and empirical perspective, these conflicting dynamics at play across the European legal and political space. Hence, we gather case studies and comparative presenting presenting legal analysis on European approaches to migration, as well as, socio-political regards on the issue.
