Migration Talks: "The Duty to Be Generous: European Ideas on Migration"

The talk addresses the ways in which “the West”, has mainstreamed its responsibilities to provide asylum to the needy by leaning heavily on human rights and refugee asylum laws.

However, these rights-based concepts leave many gaps. The talk will discuss alternative concepts of duty-based obligations to the person-in-need, which offer a wider range of people sanctuary and asylum sanctuary. Prof Chatty means that an integrated approach which taps into the social and ethical norms of hospitality can improve and extend rights-based asylum as provided by international humanitarian organisations.

Keynote:  Prof Dr Dawn Chatty

Response:  Dr. Umut Korkut

The event in Budapest is part of "Migration Talks", a series of lectures across Europe. Migration experts and visionaries are invited to share their ideas of innovative European migration policies. Topics are ranging from a new concept of borders up to alternative relocation mechanism. The format focusses on controversial ideas and tries to involve experts from different regions and backgrounds.
