"FINAL CONFERENCE OF THE PROJECT CONTENTION (CONtrol of immigration deTENTION)", Brussels, 12th December 2014


(CONtrol of immigration deTENTION)
Brussels, Friday 12th December 2014

organised by the European University Institute (EUI) / Migration Policy Centre (MPC)
& the Odysseus Academic Network (ULB)
Co-financed by the European Union

The Robert Schuman Centre of Advanced Studies (RSCAS of the EUI) and the Odysseus Academic Network (Université Libre de Bruxelles - ULB) are hosting the final conference of the project CONTENTION (CONtrol of immigration deTENTION), on 12th December at the Fondation Universitaire, 11 rue d’Egmont, in 1050 Brussels.

The legitimacy of pre-removal detention authorised by the EU Return Directive, depends upon judicial control as the ultimate guarantor that detention will be as short as possible and maintained only for the purpose of removal. The project CONTENTION examines the different dimensions of the detention's lawfulness as well as the differing practices and forms of implementation at national and European level. It is an unprecedented comparative examination of judicial control over pre-removal detention of migrants in 11 EU Member States.

At CONTENTION’s final conference, the results of the project - including a databases giving access to more than 400 cases on detention - will be discussed during three different panels among judges, academics and EU representatives. The different meanings of the notion of lawfulness will be analysed, as well the consequences of State organisation on judicial control, and the different powers that judges should have from EU law.

The conference will also be the occasion to launch the follow-up project: REDIAL (REturn DIALogue). This project aims at expanding the scope of CONTENTION by looking beyond detention to the entire return directive in all EU Member States. Its goal is to build a wide network of judges dealing with return cases and legal academics of the Odysseus Network with a view to fostering horizontal judicial dialogue.

The organisers invite all interested parties (lawyers, judges, attorneys, State, EU and international officials, academics, NGO representatives, researchers, students,...) to attend the conference and visit the project’s website and database (
