Moritz Jesse presents at EUSA 2022 Conference in Miami

Dr Moritz Jesse, Associate Professor at the Europa Institute organised two panels at the bi-annual European Studies Association (EUSA) general conference. The conference took place in Miami (US) 19 until 21 May. The first panel, titled ‘(Still) the “Others amongst Us”? European Societies, Migration and the Law after the COVID-19 Pandemic’ explored how the Covid-19 pandemic changed the findings the edited volume ‘The “Others” amongst “Us” (CUP 2020).

Moritz Jesse, who organised and chaired the panel, brought together scholars such as Dimitry Kochenov of CEU, or Helena Hofmanova of Charles University Prague to discuss in how far the pandemic contributed to the legal othering of immigrants.

The second panel, titled ‘European Citizenship and Free-Movement after the Pandemic’, was organised by Jesse together with Dimitry Kochenov. In this panel Jesse explored in how far the Covid-19 pandemic achieved good and bad things as far as free movement is concerned. This relatively positive outlook was flanked by insightful papers by Steven Couts (University College Cork) and Nathan Cambien (University of Antwerp & CJEU). The panel mapped out how far travel restrictions and other restrictions to free movement were limiting free movement rights in Europe during the COVID-19 pandemic and in how far they might remain in place into the future.
