This book is the first publication delivered within the Jean Monnet Network on Migration and Asylum Policies Systems (MAPS), born within the context of the past experiences of Jean Monnet activities carried out in the University of Naples “L’Orientale”, and involving, as partners, universities of other nine different European countries: National and Kapodistrian University of Athens; University of A Coruña; University Jean Moulin Lyon 3; University of Malta; University of Innsbruck; Queen Mary University of London; University Goce Delcev-Stip; University Sarajevo School of Science and Technology (SSST); Stiftung Europa-Universität Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder).
According to the aim of MAPS – i.e highlighting key changes and best practices relating to general principles and safeguards of asylum systems, at the same time analysing weaknesses and the compliance with international law obligations to protect asylum seekers, refugees and migrants in general – on 23rd September 2019 the First Workshop, on “Migration and Asylum Policies Systems, challenges and perspectives”, took place at University of Naples “L’Orientale”.Essays included in this volume are excerpts from the lectures given during the Workshop, concerning a critical appraisal of the national legal systems of most of MAPS Partners (in the first Part), to which contributions on topical issues concerning Asylum and Migration under European Law are added (in the second Part), as well as, in the third Part, the speeches delivered at the Workshop in Naples from Antonio Di Muro (UNHCR) and Riccardo Gatti (ONG Open Arms). On the basis of the Project, other publications will follow. The hope is that they will be able to testify an increased attention from national and international institutions to the issue of migration governance, with a view to respecting fundamental human rights as consolidated in the second half of the last century and now included in the Constitutions and international treaties ratified by European States. Unfortunately, the provisional balance of this first part of the work carried out within MAPS is not encouraging, and the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic has further made it problematic the respect of fundamental principles, in many cases overwhelmed by emergency legislation. Of course there is no question here of denying the need to resort to extraordinary measures in such worrying circumstances, but it seems paradoxical that once again migrants and asylum seekers may risk to incur in unbearable consequences.
