About the Event

The EU’s New Pact on Migration and Asylum was published on 23 September 2020. Billed as a ‘fresh start on migration in Europe’, it has been the focus of much discussion by academics, NGOs, and policymakers alike. In this webinar, Sarah Craig and Gillian Kane will provide an overview of core elements of the pact, outlining what legislative changes have been proposed as well as what is expected to happen next. They will also discuss some of the potential strengths and weaknesses of the proposed changes and additions to the EU’s migration regulation framework.

Gillian Kane is based in Northern Ireland and is a PhD Researcher in the School of Law at Queen's University, Belfast. She holds an LLM in Human Rights Law and and LLB in International and European Law. Her PhD thesis addresses the role of international law in preventing and tackling human trafficking among refugees and asylum seekers.

Sarah Craig is a lecturer at Queen’s University Belfast, taking up the position in September 2019. Her research focuses on solidarity within the Common European Asylum System, specifically looking at regional solidarity and fair-sharing ambitions. Her research is also focused more broadly on rights protections afforded to asylum applicants, specifically LGBTI+ asylum claims within the EU regional context.
