Angelos Gerontas


This course provides an analysis of EU law relating to migration. The module is divided into six parts. The first part covers the law relating to the free movement of EU citizens and their families. The course then explores the entry of non-EU (third country) nationals and aspects of the external borders control. The third part analyzes the legal migration of third country nationals including long-term residents, economic migrants and family members. Then, the course focuses on the common EU Asylum system. The fifth part deals with issues of irregular migration. Finally, the course examines the role of human rights provisions for the EU Immigration and Asylum Law. The main textbook for this course will be European Migration Law (2nd edition, Intersentia, 2014) by Pieter Boeles, Maarten den Heijer, Gerrie Lodder, Kees Wouters, although materials will also be used from the other assigned textbooks.
