Thorburn Stern appointed expert in inquiry into legal routes for asylum-seekers

Rebecca Thorburn Stern, associate professor of international law, has been appointed expert by the Swedish Government in an inquiry into legal routes to the EU for asylum-seekers.

The inquiry will analyze the possibilities for legal routes to the EU, for example through the possibility of visas or other types of admission permits for persons intending to seek asylum in the EU. If deemed possible, the inquiry will result in a proposal of a legal framework in accordance with Sweden’s obligations under EU law and other international instruments. The findings of the Inquiry will be presented at the latest 31 December 2017.
