Europe’s Response to the Challenge of Migration and Security

Dimitris Avramopoulos will explore how Europe has reacted to the challenges brought about by migration in a globalised Europe.

In 2015, Europe was confronted with an unprecedented migration and refugee crisis as well as rising security threats in the aftermath of several terrorist attacks. How did the European Union respond, politically but also operationally? What has changed since then? And is Europe today better prepared for the future? European Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, Dimitris Avramopoulos will share his experiences and insights from one of the hottest political seats in the EU’s policy and decision-making over the last three years, as well as his expectations for the future in this field.

Chair: Kevin Featherstone, Professor of European Studies and Director of the Hellenic Observatory, European Institute, LSE
