Online Workshop: Flight, Governance, Human Rights

As part of the FFVT project, the CHREN is organizing a first workshop on July 9th and 10th. In this workshop, distinguished scientists and politicians will address current challenges at the global, European and national levels of asylum, migration, governance and human rights: “Where do the Global Compacts on Migration and Refugees lead to?” “What ought to be done about the Common European Asylum system?” “What can reasonably be expected from the German EU Council Presidency, starting in July, in the area of migration and refugees – and in view of Corona?”
