two or three ; in that case they will share the same mark for the oral presentation, and the ﬁnal paper, except if they insist to have separate grade for each part of the paper, and sent a collective email signaling it. The oral presentation and the paper will account for the other 60% of the mark. Workload : Reading of articles for each session, search for primary sources and bibliography related to a speciﬁc session, book review (40%), organization of the oral presentation supported by a powerpoint, short paper reporting the key elements of the presentation and the discussion (60%). Pedagogical method : As a general rule, the two hours will be distributed in a reading of 45 minutes, questions for 15 minutes, a break, and a discussion about the students presentations. Some lectures will be delivered by guest professors : Elspeth Guild and Madeline Garlick (sse below). Course Description : The seminar aims at combining approaches of International Political Sociology with knowledges from European Migration Law and refugee rights, across a reﬂexion led by academics and high level practitioners who had to manage in very concrete terms situations under which human rights have to be defended within a security context where powerful actors argue of the necessity of their derogations in the name of diverse threats attempting to national or global security and use themselves the rhetoric of protection. In a context of so-called raise of global threats and insecurities, where public institutions refer to terrorism, organized crime, illegal migration, bogus refugees, we will examine speciﬁcally the cases in which the operational agencies of the European Union were forced to intervene and their practices, as well as their links with the governments of the EU Member States and Third Parties. How practically applies a policy of the European Union which is ofﬁcially wanting to reconcile freedom, security and justice., inside the EU, at the borders and abroad ? How the agencies for the protection of refugees or fundamental rights can intervene in a context where exceptions and derogations are claimed to be necessary ? What are their relations with the diverse NGOS and the different European courts ? Have the decisions of the judges an impact on these policies or not ? Is it possible to challenge governmental policies on this domain ? 1420
