23 March 2017. Measuring Immigration Policies and their Effects. Next Public Lecture by Marc Helbling @ University of Neuchatel.

Crossing Borders – and Then?

Public Lecture Series of the nccr – on the move. Spring 2017.

With this series of lectures, the nccr – on the move explores the refugee crisis, migration, and their political implications. How do people cross a border today in Europe? Which legal frameworks regulate migration and access to asylum? How effective is the current governance of migration policies? What are the political consequences of migration in host countries? Prominent scholars will address these questions and deepen the international debate on migration and mobility.
