The European Parliament in Migration and Asylum Politics

With the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon new decision making rules apply to the drafting of European legislation. With the extension of the use of co-decision to key policy areas, the European Parliament now directly negotiates and co-legislates with the European Council on highly salient issues such as migration and asylum policy. This Policy Forum on 14 November 2014 will discuss the role of the European Parliament as a co-legislator in Justice and Home Affairs, focusing particularly on migration and asylum policy.

The Policy Forum will start with a keynote from Prof. Dr. Ripoll-Servent, University of Bamberg. Then the practitioners on the expert panel, including Ms. Hélène Calers, European Commission, DG Home Affairs, Ms. Valérie Glatigny and Mr. Tom Feeley, ALDE Group, Policy Advisors, LIBE Committee, Ms. Patricia van de Peer, European Parliament, LIBE Secretariat and Mr. Andris Petersons, EPP Group, Policy Advisor, LIBE Committee, will share their insight on the new roles of the European Parliament and its parties in European migration and asylum politics. To attend the Policy Forum, please register on our website.
