Conference about immigration, laudatio in honour of Sir Stephen Sedley

The immigration, one of the crucial problems that along with the economic crisis and “Brexit” are testing these days the consistency of the European Union, was the subject of a conference organized on Spetses island of Greece by the European Group of Public Law (EGPL), which serves as the EPLO scientific advisory body, during its 27th anniversary Reunion. (The EGPL was formed in 1989).

The conference on the subject “Rights across Borders: Citizenship and Immigration in Europe” was held at the premises of the Anargyreios Korgialeneios School, on September 9 and 10, 2016, with the participation of over 150 judges, jurists, law academics and practitioners from around the world, all leading figures in their field.
