On the 4 March at 5pm CET, GCILS Director and the General Editor of The European Society of International Law Series, Christian Tams, will join the book launch event for the Migration and the European Convention on Human Rights  publication edited by Başak Çalı, Ledi Bianku, and Iulia Motoc, a new volume in the ESIL book series, forthcoming on 25 February 2021.

“This edited collection, comprised of contributions from migration and human rights law experts and current and former judges from the bench of the European Court of Human Rights, investigates where the European Convention on Human Rights as a living instrument stands on migration and the rights of migrants.

The book offers a comprehensive analysis of cases brought by migrants in different stages of migration, covering the right to flee, who is entitled to enter and remain in Europe, and what treatment is owed to them when they come within the jurisdiction of a Council of Europe member state. As such, the book evaluates the case law of the European Court of Human Rights concerning different categories of migrants including asylum seekers, irregular migrants, those who have migrated through domestic lawful routes, and those who are currently second or third generation migrants in Europe. The broad perspective adopted by the book allows for a systematic analysis of how and to what extent the Convention protects non-refoulement, migrant children, family rights of migrants, status rights of migrants, economic and social rights of migrants, as well as the cultural and religious rights of migrants.”

The book launch is organised by The Hertie School in Berlin
