We aim to address one of the most compelling political and legal issue that faces our society today – the obligation of states towards migrants, asylum-seekers and refugees.
We are interested in all aspects of the challenges raised by the rights of people on the move, including their access to safe migration routes, access to fair asylum determination procedure, access to rights and integration possibilities.
The Gothenburg / Lund / Uppsala Migration Law Network (GLUMIN) is a research collaboration with the aim of developing migration law and migration law research in Sweden. The research network today includes researchers in the field of migration law active at most of the country’s universities and colleges.
The questions at the core of this project are: How do relevant legal frameworks establish a balance between the differing interests of the migrants and the welfare society? What demands do these legal frameworks place on facilitating integration? And how do the legal frameworks limit immigration controls that can be introduced by individual states and which may play a negative role in integration? Human rights law is at the heart of this analysis, particularly the right not be discriminated against.
