L’Union Européenne face à la crise migratoire – 28th March – Synapse 1st Conference –

As the European elections approach, Synapse (Paris School of Economics students association) is launching a series of conferences and debates to understand the stakes involved, all under an economic prism to lay the foundations for a reflection on the policies to be carried out at European level.

“L’Union Européenne face à la crise migratoire” – “European Union facing the migration crisis”

Can we really talk about a migration crisis and for whom? What policies can be implemented? How can cooperation within the European Union be more effective than a sum of national policies? Has Europe been up to the challenge, especially since 2015?

The conference will be moderated by Julia Pascual (Le Monde), with :

  • Sylvie Guillaume, Vice-President of the European Parliament and specialist on European harmonisation of the right of asylum.
  • Aurelien Tache, Member of Parliament & rapporteur of the Asylum and Immigration Act (Loi Asile et Immigration).
  • Geneviève Jacques, President of the « La Cimade » association until 2018, France’s first association to help refugees.
  • Hillel Rapoport, Professor at Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and Paris School of Economics, international specialist on immigration and growth issues.
  • Hippolyte d’Albis, Researcher, CNRS – Centre national de la recherche scientifique, Professor at Paris School of Economics, specialist on the macroeconomic impact of immigration.
