|dc.description.abstract||Migration, asylum and the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice continue to be some of the most discussed and topical policy areas of the European Union.
The Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership entitled Innovative Solutions for Practicality and Impact in Refugee and Migration Oriented Education (INSPIRED) has aimed inter alia at improving the quality and relevance of legal education in the field of refugee and migration oriented education at the partner universities. It has undertaken to introduce innovative learning methods in legal education such as virtual mobility and the strategic use of information and communication technology, as well as to strengthen the quality of specialized education through international mobility and cross-border cooperation.
In this spirit, the INSPIRED project has organized two Intensive Programmes (one in Opatija, Croatia and one in Vilnius, Lithuania) for students of the partner universities. The research papers contained in this volume have been prepared by the students taking part in these Intensive Programmes – they have been reviewed and selected for publication by the participating lecturers of the project.
The editors hope that these research papers will also encourage other students to look deeper into the complex legal issues surrounding migration and asylum in the European Union.||hu
