The course will analyze the application of human rights to a migrant’s life cycle – from departure in the country of origin to arrival and stay in a host country and a possible return. Existing case-law of the European Court of Human Rights and other international instances will be discussed.


The exam will be oral (15 minutes, without preparation). It will consist of a case and several questions.

Students are allowed to use the laws indicated during the lecture and published on Moodle.


The course will allow students to get familiar with human rights that have a special meaning for migrants (non-refoulement principle, right to family life, etc.) by studying the ECtHR's and other instances' landmark cases.
