In current instruments of EU immigration and asylum law, we see that different legal protection regimes apply to different categories of migrants. The availability and the scope of legal remedies may depend on a number of factors: the (human) rights which are at stake, the nationality or the legal status of the person concerned, the purpose of migration, the actor which has taken a decision or has taken action against the migrant or even the territory in which the person concerned is located. Legal protection should normally be offered by the national courts of a State. National law and practices with regard to the availability of and access to legal protection for migrants should comply with requirements of both EU and international law. At the same time international courts such as the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) and other supervising bodies play an important (subsidiary) role in the legal protection of migrants. Significant interaction takes place between national courts and these international courts and bodies. This course addresses the legal protection of migrants. The first part of the course will give an introduction to the topic. It addresses amongst others the importance and development of legal remedies for migrants, the right to an effective remedy, the system and accessibility of legal remedies on the national, EU and international level and the interaction between the European courts. The second part of the course will focus on the availability and accessibility of legal protection in several particular fields of migration law.
