Gastvortrag: Missing the Boat: Assessing the Common European Asylum System in Theory and Practice

Vortrag im Rahmen der Vorlesung „Politisches System der EU“:

Joyce M. Mushaben

Missing the Boat: Assessing the Common European Asylum System in Theory and Practice

Wednesday, 28th june 2017, 10-12 h c.t., Hörsaal 22, Kupferbau

Recognizing the need for social cohesion among member-states by 2004, EU officials introduced „an arsenal of instruments“ to cover familiy reunification, secure residency status, and common conditions of entry for paid employment among Third Country Nationals. Member states agreed to set minimum standards for receiving asylum seekers, as well as to recognize the qualifications of non-EU nationals meriting international protection by way of new Directives. Although the refugee surge of 2014/2015 led to a recast of many CEAS components, EU officials have yet to remedy the core flaw of the „unequal treatment“ problem across the member-states: the „securitized“ Dublin System, which has subjected persons in need of international protection to ever more perilous routes and criminal exploitation by smugglers. The consequences for women and unaccompanied minors point to the EU’s failure to practice what it preaches with regard to its 1996 gender mainstreaming mandate.

Joyce M. Mushaben is a visiting fellow at the IfP. She is Curators‘ Professor of Comparative Politics & Gender Studies at the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) and is holder of UMSL’s President’s Award for Career Excellence. She has spent over 20 years studying and researching in Germany, focusing on comparative studies of East/West/multi-cultural „German“ identities, European immigration & integration policies, comparative welfare states, as well as on peace, ecology and Neo-Nazi youth movements. Her most recent books include Gendering the European Union (co-edited with Gabriele Abels; Palgrave-Macmillan 2012) and Becoming MadamChancellor: Angela Merkel and the Berlin Republic (Cambridge University, 2017).

KU Leuven

Decentring the Analysis of European Foreign Policy in a non-European and post-Western Order

OPEN LECTURE

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017 · 10:00 c.t. · Lecture Room 8, Neue Aula

Stephan Keukeleire is Professor at the Faculty of Social Sciences, KU Leuven, and one of the most prominent analysts of EU foreign and security policy.

His co-authored 2016 piece ‘Beyond EU navel-gazing: Taking stock of EU-centrism in the analysis of EU foreign policy’ sparked a lively debate in EU foreign policy analysis circles about the ways in which we think about and conceptualise European foreign policy. It is this debate that he will address in this  lecture.
