Sourcebook: European and International Asylum and Migration Law


BronnenboekThe volume “Essential Texts on European and International Asylum and Migration Law”, edited by Gert Vermeulen and Ellen Desmet, comprises the relevant legal instruments in the area of international and European asylum and migration.

The range of issues covered is comprehensive: human rights; nationality and statelessness; equal treatment, non-discrimination, racism and xenophobia; citizenship, residence and free movement; borders, border management and entry; visa and passenger data; labour migration; family reunification; asylum, subsidiary and temporary protection; irregular migration; and trafficking in human beings.

The texts have been ordered according to the multilateral co-operation level within which they were drawn up: either the United Nations, the Council of Europe or the European Union (including Schengen-level instruments).

This edition provides practitioners, authorities, policy makers, scholars and students throughout Europe with an accurate and up-to-date compilation of essential texts on asylum and migration matters.
