Ladies and Gentlemen,

Dear Friends,

I have the honour, on behalf of the Odysseus Academic Network, to inform you about the 13th edition of our Summer School on 'Immigration and Asylum Law and Policy of the European Union', that will once again take place in the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) in Brussels (Belgium) from 1 to 12 July 2013. 

The classes give a global vision of the immigration and asylum law in Europe. They are conducted by academics, among the best specialists in this field, from the member universities of the Odysseus Academic Network, which is represented in all Member States of the European Union, and by high-ranking officials from international organisations, particularly the European Commission. The Summer School provides the opportunity to live in a unique European environment and to tackle the most recent developments in this area of law and policy. It also encourages networking with around one hundred participants active in this field. Over the last 12 years, the Summer School has gathered almost 1500 people from diverse nationalities and backgrounds (national and international civil servants, NGOs' representatives, lawyers, professors, researchers, PhD candidates, judges, social workers, advanced students, etc.).

In order to enable participants in full-time employment to attend, the classes are mainly held in the afternoon, between 14.00 and 18.30. Each class is given separately in French and in English. Interested candidates are strongly advised to submit their applications by using the registration form available on the website of the Network as soon as possible because of the limited number of places available. Additional information is available on our website: http://www.ulb.ac.be/assoc/odysseus/Summer2013UK.html

I also invite you to visit our website to discover the certificate that we organize as a one-year program in order to gain an in-depth knowledge of the subject: http://www.ulb.ac.be/assoc/odysseus/Certificate13.html

On behalf of the Odysseus Academic Network, I hope to have the pleasure to meet you at the Summer School or at our one-year Certificate in European Law on Immigration and Asylum. I would be very grateful if you could forward the present email to any person who could be interested in order to help us to promote our programmes, which are completely self-financed, as largely as possible. 

Sincerely yours, 


Coordinator of the Odysseus Academic Network





Mesdames et Messieurs,

Chers Amis, 

J’ai l’honneur, au nom du Réseau académique Odysseus, de vous informer de la tenue de la 13ème édition du cours d’été "Droit et politique européenne de l'immigration et de l’asile" qui se tiendra à nouveau à l'Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) à Bruxelles (Belgique) du 1er au 12 juillet 2013. 

Les enseignements qui donnent une vision globale du droit de l'immigration et de l'asile en Europe sont dispensés par des professeurs issus des universités membres du Réseau académique Odysseus provenant de tous les Etats Membres de l’Union européenne et figurant parmi les meilleurs spécialistes de la matière, ainsi que par des professionnels de haut niveau d'organisations internationales, en particulier la Commission européenne. Le cours d'été offre la possibilité de vivre une expérience unique dans un environnement véritablement européen en prenant connaissance des derniers développements de la matière. Il permet également de nouer des contacts avec une centaine de personnes directement intéressées et d'élargir votre réseau. Durant ses 12 années d'existence, le cours d'été a en effet rassemblé au total près de 1500 personnes d'horizons divers (fonctionnaires nationaux et internationaux, représentants d'ONGs, avocats, professeurs, chercheurs, doctorants, magistrats, travailleurs sociaux, étudiants, etc.) provenant du monde entier.

Afin de faciliter la participation de personnes déjà engagées dans la vie professionnelle, les cours se donnent principalement l’après-midi entre 14h00 et 18h30. Les participants ont la possibilité de suivre les cours en anglais ou en français selon leur choix. En raison du grand nombre de participants, il est recommandé de s'inscrire le plus tôt possible via le formulaire ad hoc sur notre site internet. Des informations complémentaires figurent dans la brochure annexée à ce courriel ou sur notre site internet: http://www.ulb.ac.be/assoc/odysseus/Summer2013FR.html 

Par ailleurs, je vous invite à visiter notre site internet pour prendre connaissance du certificat que nous organisons également comme programme d'une année entière permettant d'acquérir une connaissance approfondie de la matière: http://www.ulb.ac.be/assoc/odysseus/Certificate13.html
