ONLINE! Managing Migration in Europe: Challenge and Response

Taking stock of the tools, best practices and challenges in the field of migration and asylum in Europe

About the course

In the coming years, the European Union (institutions, Member States, national parliaments, EU agencies, regions, etc.) should mobilise its resources and have its legislative, diplomatic, financial, security and humanitarian instruments drive a global strategy.

To this end, for those working, researching or purely interested in this important policy it is critical to review, extend and update the knowledge and understanding of the  instruments, best practices and tools on the current European migration and asylum policy.

The programme, therefore, includes an overview of the main legal instruments for migration management at EU level, as well as its main actors. Participants will understand and reflect upon implementation challenges that might arise when using these instruments at national level.

Linking theory to immediate practice, this three-day seminar incorporates interactive presentations on the technical content, practical case studies in small groups and feedback sessions.

Which methodology is used?

The course will take place on Cisco Webex Training/ Meetings combined with MS Teams, which allows for a highly interactive online learning. Participants will be able to:

• See the trainers and their peers,
• Follow the lectures and presentations,
• Have access to interactive whiteboards,
• Take part in different activities in groups or together.

Moreover, they will be able to interact with trainers and other participants through a feedback panel, and Q&A and chat tools. All in all, it will create a unique virtual space for learning, networking and interaction.

The programme combines training sessions on both substance and skills:

  • Interactive training sessions presenting the latest developments on migration and asylum legislation;
  • Case studies designed to better understand the function of the instruments put in place to face the current refugees crisis;
  • Debates to promote experience sharing with lecturers and other participants.

Why participate?

Through this programme, participants will have an opportunity to:

  • Understand and keep abreast of the actions taken in the fields of migration and asylum in the EU and at the European level, especially following the refugee crisis: achievements, developments, and opportunities/challenges;
  • Understand the role and importance of coordination between the  EU and the national level: the existing legal tools and instruments, current practices and gaps;
  • Obtain cutting-edge advice and insights from high-level lecturers;
  • Join the exclusive LinkedIn group for the alumni of the course;
  • Strengthen their analytical skills through the analysis of case studies.


In line with the changing protocol surrounding the COVID-19 and the recommendations from Belgian authorities, the course team is mostly working remotely.
