Join Toni Haastrup who will present on how militarised responses to migration by the EU are not exceptional but rather emblematic of long-standing martial politics, challenging the perception of recent events as unprecedented and urging a re-evaluation of the EU’s global role.
Law has created a close interdependence between citizenship and human mobility. Do states provide equal mobility for all citizens? How do different legal statuses limit or enhance mobility? What is the role of international law? How are citizenship and mobility influenced by a state’s situation, such as crises or economic, political, and social changes? And how can a person’s changing circumstances (dis)enable their mobility? These questions underscore the urgent need for cross-disciplinary research aimed at enhancing our understanding of how citizenship, mobility, and law are structurally intertwined and, ultimately, influence human (im)mobility
This workshop will delve into various aspects of the relationship between law, citizenship, and mobility. What is the role of technology? Who has the privilege to move and under what circumstances, and who is compelled to? What personal and legal resources become available to individuals and families when mobility is facilitated? Bringing together scholars from the Center for Global Mobility Law (University of Copenhagen), the Global Citizenship Observatory (EUI), and the Migration Policy Centre (EUI), this workshop offers a platform for scholars from both domains to share their insights on the interplay between citizenship, global mobility, and law.

Join the 2024 EU-Asia Annual conference and explore more Japan’s strategic response to China within the Free and Open Indo-Pacific framework, highlighting its lessons for G7 nations on security.
Under the banner of a Free and Open Indo-Pacific, Japan has crafted a grand strategy towards China. Such an approach holds valuable lessons for both the US and Europe, as well as for G7 players more broadly, as demonstrated by the successes of the latest Hiroshima summit. Japan’s encounter with the mix of opportunities and risks posed by a resurgent China early in the 21st century has enabled a learning process in major Western capitals on how to deal with China.
This conference includes major practitioners and assesses the G7 approaches to the China challenge, highlighting Japan’s quiet leadership role, as well as significant differences and best practices in key G7 agenda items: from potential scenarios of security collaboration to synergies across the Taiwan Strait, and economic security broadly defined to include integrative and defensive measures against coercion. The conference concludes by considering a strategic development dossier – possibly high on Italy’s G7 agenda – one that considers the composite needs of the so-called ‘Global South’. This international conference is timely, given Japan’s successful G7 presidency in 2023 and the ‘baton touch’ to Italy in 2024.
In light of these developments, both in the fields of actual political processes and in strategic planning, this conference compares the China agenda, teasing out the complementarities, rift points, and potential convergences. In doing so, the goal is to understand the new concepts and trends as well as explore the tasks ahead in the coming decade.
