New Project on Social Protection Laws of Migrants
The Department for Social Law at the Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy has started working on a new project on migration. In cooperation with the University of California, Davis, the scientists will be conducting research on the regulations with which countries react to migration. On the one hand, they are especially interested in how the law constructs certain groups of people, e.g. persons entitled to asylum or those who are tolerated. On the other hand, the project will shine a light on the social protection laws that are connected to a specific status. Besides the USA and Germany, Sweden, Italy and Greece will be factored into the comparison. Furthermore, the experiences of African countries will be taken into account.
