18th Odysseus Network Annual Summer School (Brussels, 12 days)

Each year, the Odysseus Network organizes a summer school in EU immigration and asylum law and policy. The courses tackle the most recent legislative, jurisprudential and political developments in the field at EU level.



The Annual Summer School provides participants with a comprehensive understanding of the immigration and asylum policy of the EU. The classes have a legal focus, combining theoretical and practical elements while also leaving space for question time and class discussion. The program is organised by the Odysseus Network for Legal Studies on Immigration and Asylum in Europe.

Participants in the Summer School typically include PhD and graduate students, researchers, lecturers, EU and Member State officials, representatives from NGOs and International Organisations, lawyers, judges, social workers and more.

The classes are taught by academics from the universities cooperating in the Odysseus Network, which is represented in all EU Member States, and by high-ranking officials from the European Institutions, particularly the European Commission.

The Summer School program is offered in English or in French (taught separately).
