The current EU refugee crisis now seems to threaten the viability of the Schengen borders and raises questions about the future of the European Union and the possibility of a Britxit.  This colloquium will explore Europe’s special situation, geographically as well as juridically, the meaning of the crisis for the future of the Union  in an interdisciplinary discussion among lawyers, political and social scientists, and historians on refugee and asylum law and rights today.

The conference is organized and moderated by Seyla Benhabib, Yale University and Senior Scholar in Residence at the Columbia Center for Contemporary Critical Thought (CCCT), and Bernard Harcourt, director of the CCCT.
