The 2017 Odysseus Annual Conference organised in cooperation with the European Commission’s Representation in Belgium will critically assess the developments in European Immigration and Asylum Law and Policy during the year 2016, as well as casting a look into 2017.

After a plenary session devoted to the kind of crisis we are experiencing and an analysis of the importance of European values for the migration and asylum policies from a legal point of view, nine interactive workshops organised in three streams will cover the following topics:
1 . Cooperation between Member States
2. Protection of Persons
3. Management of Migration Flows
