Vulnerability, the original notion of which can be traced back to environmental sciences (Adger, 2006, p. 268), has relatively recently found its way into the legal field, becoming a powerful and versatile tool for lawmakers, law practitioners and judicial authorities. However, the notion’s interpretation remains unclear and has generated a heated debate in theory and practice. NRC has viewed creating a research line dedicated to ‘vulnerability’ as essential for approaching the term holistically and identifying its implications in the context of migration
Civil society actors have been particularly active in the field of migration, both in Europe and worldwide. The line of research on ‘Migration and Civil Society’ aims at understanding better their significance by exploring their relationship with law, especially European Union (EU) law.
As today an increasing number of people migrate in search of a place that offers them better living conditions than those provided by their country of origin, we aim to identify and analyse, within our line of research, the restrictions coercively imposed by the host State to the pursuit of this purpose of life.
The line of research on “Migration, Gender and Sexuality” aims at developing knowledge about the impact that factors such as gender, identity, gender expression and sexual orientation have on the lives of populations in order to force them to seek international protection.
This line of research aims at analysing the evolution and impact of digital transformation in EU migration management. We seek to elaborate a systematic study, highlighting the state of the art and the normative framework of Databases addressing third-country nationals.
