Argumentaire

Movement of persons has been a key feature in the whole history of European integration, and the time has come for historians to discuss and draw some conclusions on its evolving conceptions and practical applications, placing both of them in the wider context of the social and demographic transformation of Europe and the political and economic narrative of continental integration.

The aim of this conference is to integrate the existing fragmented analyses, place them in a longer perspective and extend the analysis further by:

  • examining the role played by the movement of workers and, afterwards, persons in the process of continental integration;
  • examining the impact made by migration flows to Europe on the European integration process and the European consciousness;
  • investigating the role played by EC/EU policies in internal and international flows of migrants and asylum seekers;
  • investigating the impact made by EC/EU immigration policies, especially the Schengen regime, on the external relations of both the EC/EU and its member states;
  • integrating internal and international movement of persons within, to and from Eastern European countries during the pre-1989 period into the history of European migrations.

It is our conviction that European migration policies and their impact on national societies and economies in the postwar period cannot be fully understood without taking into account the Community framework, and that historians of international relations, particularly historians of the European integration process, have an important contribution to offer for a better understanding of such a topic. In addition to offering the opportunity to widen the knowledge of socio-economic and political-diplomatic dimensions of the European integration process, therefore, this conference also aims to significantly contribute to migration studies as a whole.
