Project description

REMAP is a research project that maps the legal framework of human rights law and reevaluates its implications for the EU migration policy.

From the beginning of 2018 until the end of 2020, the REMAP-team, Prof. Dr. Jürgen Bast (project leader), Dr. Frederik von Harbou (scientific project coordinator) and Dr. Janna Wessels (all members of the Giessen-based Research Group Migration and Human Rights) will prepare a study on the "Human Rights Challenges to European Migration Policy" (REMAP). 

The project team collaborates closely with a Panel of Experts  in the development of the study. The Panel  consists of international specialists from academia and practice as well as the German Institute for Human Rights (Deutsches Institut für Menschenrechte, DIMR) and the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) as institutional partners.

A discussion paper (from August 2018) kicks off the project (download here). The German version of the document can be found here. The REMAP team invites the expert community to participate in the discussion with suggestions and criticism.

Key findings of the study will be presented and discussed at a conference in Berlin on 27 October 2020. The conference language is German. Further information (in German) can be found here.

The first edition of the study is available here as an open access document in English. 

REMAP is supported by the Mercator foundation (Stiftung Mercator).
