Securitization in the EU: Legal and Policy Implications for Canada, Dec 2/3, 2011


Project Summary:

Project Description:

How have states balanced the goal of collective security with that of upholding individual rights? What factors have shaped the different policy choices in North America vs. Europe? What role have courts and international human rights norms played in these insecure times? Securitization, argue many scholars, has also adversely affected the way in which advanced industrialized states make immigration and asylum policy, in particular with respect to deportation and detentions. At the same time that humanitarian protection and liberal immigration policies are under threat, human smuggling and trafficking is on the rise, reflecting a contradiction between the tough restrictionist rhetoric and the reality on the ground. This Workshop will focus on matters related to law and security in the EU, and will necessarily intersect with criminal law enforcement and human rights constraints.
