The research focuses on the tension arising from the European Unions obligations to respect human rights in the field of asylum on the one hand and the unions explicit efforts to manage migration and control of external borders on the other. It studies from an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective the legislation, policies, programmes, and practices developed in response to mixed migration movements at the European and national level. Empirical research will scrutinize practices and interventions of national authorities and non-state actors, and point out whether the latter are able to fill protection gaps caused by national legislation and practice.
