Controlling migration in Europe.

Challenges to Human Rights and the Rule of Law.

The CCCB will host the annual meeting of the European project CHALLENGE - Liberty & Security directed by Didier Bigo, a lecturar at the Institut d'Études Politiques in París and King's College, London. The project is a collaboration between a number of European universities and research centres who are working in the area of inmigration and security policies. The meeting, co-ordinated by the University of Barcelona's Observatori del Dret Penal i els Drets Humans, will bring together a group of leading experts in this area to reflect on: the obsession with security and migration policies in the EU; the imprisonment of migrants; shortfalls in democracy; and citizenships denied.
