The recently established agreement between Afghanistan and the EU, the so-called „Joint way forward on migration issues” (Kabul, 2 October 2016) has brought about a public debate in Luxembourg and other EU member states. Apart from the question of whether Afghanistan can be considered a “safe third country”, the agreement raises general issues on asylum policy, for example the problem of tying together foreign aid and collaboration in deportation/remigration measures.
The Key Area MIS – Migration and Intercultural Studies (University of Luxembourg) will contribute to these debates by co-organizing with the platform “Afghanistan is not safe, Luxembourg” on 31 January 2017 an evening conference on these topics. The aim of the conference is to bring together different perspectives and understandings – scholarly reflections, political reasoning, public claims and individual experiences.

The conference on 31 January 2017 comprises two lectures followed by a roundtable discussion.
