LL.M. in International Migration and Refugee Law
Deadline for application: 1 June 2015
International migration is one of the most important social issues of our time. People move across border for work, studies, love, as well as in order to flee poverty, persecution and violence. We will address international migration from the perspective of international and European law, and focus on the way these legal orders function in domestic legal orders. The interplay between international, European and domestic law is a specific focus of the track.
The LL.M. programme 'International Migration and Refugee Law' at the VU University Amsterdam deals with:
• When are migrants entitled to asylum?
• Under which circumstances do families have the right to reside in a country of their preference?
• What is the role of the European Union in managing migration within the EU as well as towards Europe?
• Can undocumented migrants claim social rights?
The programme is in English, starts on 1 September 2015 and lasts one year (full-time).
