The Course on International Migration Law presents the key aspects of the migration phenomenon from different angles, including the obligations and concerns of States and the rights and responsibilities of migrants. The workshop includes an analysis of the international legal instruments that relate to migration, as well as the legal framework concerning other categories of persons in need of international protection, such as refugees, victims of trafficking and smuggled persons. The audience has the opportunity to analyse the complex nature of today’s migratory phenomenon, including trends, causes, journeys and associated risks, international protection at sea, detention and alternatives to detention, and return and reintegration in the country of origin. Participants explore countries’ approaches to migration management in terms of border admission and exit criteria for persons on the move and are exposed to the current developments generated by the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.
