New Publication on EU Asylum Law by Dr Velluti

New book written by Dr Velluti entitled ‘Reforming the Common European Asylum System – Legislative Developments and Judicial Activism of the European Courts’ is published

This timely volume critically examines selected EU instruments adopted in the context of the Common European Asylum System and key judgments of the European Court of Justice and European Court of Human Rights. The analysis includes an assessment of the recast asylum package adopted in June 2013. The book’s focus is on the protection of fundamental human rights of asylum seekers and responds to some of the contemporary challenges faced by the EU protection regime.

About Dr Samantha Velluti

Previously at Manchester and Liverpool Law Schools as lecturer in EU law. I have researched and written extensively in the area of EU governance and constitutionalism and the Open Method of Co-ordination in the context of employment, gender equality and immigration. More recently, I have been carrying out research in the field of EU asylum law and policy examining legislative developments and the judicial activism of the European Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights. Other areas of research include the promotion of human rights and international labour standards in the EU external trade law and policy and in this context the relationship between the European Union and other International organisations as well as its relationship with third countries. I welcome collaborative research projects, including inter-disciplinary work, and Ph.D proposals focusing on these areas of research.
