The Academic network for legal studies on immigration and asylum in Europe, the Odysseus Network, has announced that registration for the 15th edition of the Summer School “European Union Law and Policy on Immigration and Asylum” is open. The Summer School will take place at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) in Brussels from 29 June to 10 July 2015. 

The Summer School aims to provide participants with a thorough knowledge of European Union policy on immigration and a comprehensive overview of EU asylum law. Classes will be taught by leading specialists in the field, including academics from across Europe and high-ranking officials from European Institutions.

This year, the Summer School will include a new doctoral seminar in EU Immigration and Asylum Law. This seminar aims to provide a group of 15 PhD researchers with the opportunity to present their thesis topics and receive feedback from a panel of experts from the Odysseus Academic Network.

The Summer School also offers the opportunity to meet practitioners and academics working on asylum and migration across Europe and in Brussels-based EU Institutions (European Parliament, Commission and Council), International Organisations (IOM, ICMPD), NGOs (ECRE, JRS-Europe, Picum, etc.) and think-tanks (MPG, CEPS, MPI).
