The Faculty of Law, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens organises a Conference titled 'Regulating ‘Irregular’ Migration: International Obligations and International Responsibility’. The conference is part of a research project, which is implemented within the framework of the Action «Supporting Postdoctoral Researchers» of the Operational Program "Education and Lifelong Learning" of the General Secretariat for Research and Technology and is co-financed by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Greek State.


The conference will be held on 20 March 2015 at the Faculty Club, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.



This conference aims to address the contemporary phenomenon of ‘irregular migration’ against the background of the international law, including the law of international responsibility. We will consider the relationship between the various international obligations incumbent upon states and international organizations concerning the treatment of ‘irregular migration’ and their interplay with the law of international responsibility. Special emphasis will be placed on the measures that States and organizations undertake in order to control ‘irregular migration’, the respective obligations of States and the responsibility issues that may arise.
