Migration takes place for a variety of reasons, which may be economic, social, political or environmental in nature. Due to wars and unstable situations in Arabic and African countries, we have seen lots of movements of large groups of people over the past decade. And there seems to be no end to it. This puts pressure on Europe and raises many questions about aid, refugees, border security, human rights, solidarity, integration, labour market impacts, law and international governance, etc. In this series, we address the developments of migration and different issues of migration law and policies.
