Topics:

The present mass migration into Europe, after reaching a peak in 2015, has caused great concerns in many European countries. A polarization of political views can be observed both within some European countries (ranging from „welcome culture“ to fundamental opposition against migration) and between some countries. The polarization is such that it could even endanger the future of the European Union. In particular, some countries in Central and Eastern Europe have vehemently opposed any significant distribution of migrants (refugees) into their territories and instead plead for a strict control of the outside borders of the EU.

Mass migration causes challenges in all spheres of the society. It is also a legal challenge, both on the national and on the European and international level.

In the last few months, legal aspects of migration have been discussed in many fora, political and academic. However, the views of East European countries, whose governments are often criticized severely in German politics and media for their restrictive positions, are mostly looked-at only from outside.

The incoming conference on 4 November 2016, organized by the Institute of East European Law of Kiel University, will be the first academic conference giving a particular forum for representatives of some countries from Central and Eastern (or South Eastern) Europe.

The purpose of the Conference is to gain direct information and discuss about the views in Eastern Europe on how to cope with the migration crisis from a legal perspective.
