Friday, 3 July | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Please note the earlier-than-usual start time for this event.
In his address to the IIEA, Mr López Aguilar will address the long-standing challenge of reforming the European migration policy and the Common European Asylum System. In particular, he will focus on how to maintain EU solidarity while providing refugees and asylum seekers with the rights that they deserve across the Member States. Mr López Aguilar will also discuss the creation of legal pathways for migration in order to prevent the need for search and rescue operations, as well as the impact of the coronavirus crisis on migrants and refugees.
