Although all European states grant some form of secure residence status to foreign nationals, substantial differences persist among them in the rights pertaining to that status, the grounds for losing it, and the degree of protection against expulsion. This volume explores the law protecting aliens in Europe under four headings: - The legal framework provided at the European level by the European Convention on Human Rights (especially Articles 3 and 8), its case law, and various subsidiary instruments of the Council of Europe; evolving European Union law based on the principle of freedom of movement, agreements between the EU and non-member states, and the 1997 draft convention on migration policies; and the implementation of this supra-national law at the national level; - The effect in the Nordic region and the Common Travel Area of the abolition of border controls, with special attention to the question of compensatory measures; - The issue of double jeopardy arising from the use of expulsion in conjunction with a criminal sentence, as illustrated in French and German case law; - The legal `balancing act' required in many cases to protect the public interest without violating a person's legitimate right to a secure residence, taking into consideration the potentially conflicting interests of the receiving state and the foreign national. Security of Residence and Expulsion: Protection of Aliens in Europe offers clear guidelines for policymakers on harmonising the principles underlying legislation in this area of critical and growing importance in European life. It will be of great value to practitioners and academics concerned with the extension of existing rules governing security of residence and protection against expulsion for long-term immigrants and their families.
More than a decade has passed since the appearance of the first issue of the European Journal of Migration and Law, which was established to examine the intertwining of issues of law and migration in the EU. This volume has been compiled to celebrate that anniversary. The journal itself is the basis for the book: authors who have written the most significant contributions for the journal on the relevant issues to the Area of Freedom Security and Justice (AFSJ) have revised and updated their articles in light of current developments. These are supplemented with new chapters on issues which have turned out to be particularly important to the development of the field. The success of the journal has demonstrated the need for informed, independent academic research on the changing nature of immigration and asylum in Europe, and this volume too seeks to meet that need. It offers a unqiue and lively collection of essays covering the field of EU immigration and asylum law from a variety of perspectives.
The Legal Measures and Social Consequences of Criminal Law in Member States on Trafficking and Smuggling in Human Beings
This is a study of the legal framework on criminal measures on trafficking and/or smuggling and facilitating illegal entry in six Member States: France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK, and the European Union. This issue is at the nexus of migration and criminal law. The system of criminal law in the Member States is a central part of the balance of the powers of the authorities and the rights of the citizen. The way in which civil liberties of the individual are weighed in comparison with public protection duties by the authorities is in essence a constitutional issue. The treatment of foreigners, in particular as regards their entry onto the territory and residence is not part of the constitutional settlements, but a field governed by state discretion and exceptionalism. The rules and administrative measures regarding entry, residence and expulsion of foreigners is not subject to the same civil liberties guarantees of due process as apply in criminal law.
This comparative study examines how, in each Member State, the insertion of immigration into criminal law takes place. Do the rules of criminal law in respect of due process take precedence over the lower evidential and procedural requirements which are applied in the field of immigration? How does the criminal justice system deal with this new field where central constitutional issues are not present? There are two levels on which the insertion of immigration into criminal law takes place – the legal and the social. This book deals with both. On the one hand it looks at the laws and the court decisions on criminal trials in respect of immigrants for immigration related offences, on the other hand it looks at how the society (political actors, media, interest groups etc) discuss and develop this issue.
This book is designed for policymakers, academics, students and activists concerned about the European Union.
