Migration flows towards Europe and inside Europe are a stable phenomenon, but continuously evolving, and raising new questions and challenges to Member States’ and EU policymakers. Since the entry into force of the Schengen Agreements and of the Amsterdam Treaty, a particularly evident European-wide dimension of Migration Law began to develop. The Lisbon Treaty reinforced this trend. At the same time, the performance of the same EU with regards to the respect of human rights and of democratic principles in shaping its migratory policy is often called into question, both in its internal dimension and in the context of international relations with third countries. The module is conceived in order to promote in a stable way the critical study of EU Migration Law, the spreading of knowledge among interested persons and future professionals in the field of migration management, the debate on recent and future developments of the EU action on the subject matter.Both the regime of free circulation for EU nationals and the regime of immigration of TCNs from outside the EU and of circulation inside the EU will be investigated. The purpose is to emphasize if the striking differences between the two legal regimes are still tenable, or are a source of distortion detrimental not only to the migrants, but also to the EU itself and its objectives. It will also be pointed out how the restrictive features of the regime on TCN risk to “contaminate” the liberal regime of free circulation of EU nationals and of their family members.Asylum policy and international relations with transit and sending countries will receive considerable attention. Finally, a part of the teaching and research activities will concern the experiences carried out in other regional circles, in order to extract insights and cues for both “EU legal studies” and “Comparative regional studies” in migration governance.
