by | Apr 13, 2021

22 April 2021 | 14.00 – 15.00 (BST)

This event will involve a conversation between Margaritis Schinas, Vice-President for Promoting our European Way of Life, European Commission and Professors Vincent Chetail and Elspeth Guild about the current proposals as part of the European Pact on migration and Asylum which was announced by the European Commission at the end of 2020.
