The Fourth Freedom: Free Movement and Migration in Europe Before and After the Crisis (Adrian Favell)


Date: Mar 13, 2014

Speaker: Adrian Favell, Professor of Sociology, Sciences Po, and Alliance Visiting Professor (Spring 2014), Columbia University

Freedom of movement is quite unique to the European regional integration project, and has been its most dramatic contribution to the breaking down of bounded nationalist conceptions of economy and society in Europe. This talk will discuss the potentials, patterns and effects of open cross-border labor markets in Europe from the Maastricht Treaty through Enlargement to the current crisis, considering how free movement becomes more essential in times of economic hardship and austerity.

Adrian Favell is the author of Philosophies of Integration: Immigration and the Idea of Citizenship in France and Britain (1998) and Eurostars and Eurocities: Free Movement and Mobility in an Integrating Europe (2008). http://www.adrianfavell.com
