As mentioned earlier, EUglobal is hosting a workshop in the margins of the ESIL 2016 Conference in Riga. The papers for this workshop are posted here on the Interest Group blog. Today’s paper is written by Tamás Molnár, and is entitled “EU Migration Law Shaping International Migration Law in the Field of Expulsion of Aliens: The Empire Strikes Back?“. Here is an excerpt:
As a result of the so-called “multi-level” or “multi-layered governance” (hereinafter: MLG), international migration law divides into global norms and fragmented features, including regional regulatory frames. This paper fits into the exploratory dimension of MLG which aims at examining how to construct coherence for international migration law. It deals with the interactions of functionally differentiated normative layers, the supranational level (European Union law) and the universal level (especially law-making within the United Nations) in a specific field of law, namely the expulsion of aliens.
Update 25 August 2016: A revised version of the paper has been uploaded.
