Presentation and Objectives

The Jean Monnet Chair on migration and integration of asylum-seekers and refugees in the European Union, was granted to his holder, Prof. Porras- Ramírez, by the European Commission in 2019 in order to create a study center aimed at promoting dialogue between the academic world and the social and political actors interested in relation to a strategic objective of the European Union.

Thus, its purpose is none other than to move towards the establishment and dissemination of common principles that make possible the integration of people requesting international protection in the European Union. It is, therefore, aware that the integration of migrants is fundamental in increasingly complex and multicultural societies, such as those in Europe.

The finding of the existence of multiple difficulties and barriers faced by people requesting to be welcomed in many Member States, which hinder their inclusion, is, however, a fact that has been observed, especially since the great Migration crisis of 2015-2016. A crisis that also has questioned the effectiveness of the Common European System of Asylum, Subsidiary Protection and Temporary Protection of displaced people. In this sense, the Jean Monnet Chair, through its many activities and publications, aims to raise awareness among all the actors involved about the urgency of the reception and integration of people requesting international protection, according to their dignity as human beings. This implies, inescapably, the requirement of recognition of their rights.

For all these reasons, the Jean Monnet Chair demonstrates the fundamental role that university education should play in this matter, contributing to the communication and dissemination of the guidelines designed, to that end, by the European Commission.
