In the context of a framework contract for the provision of expertise, concluded with the EU Parliament in 2015, the Private International Law Pole at TEE won two call for tenders in Spring 2017 for the writing up of two studies concerning Private International Law interactions with Immigration Lax. The result of these studies were presented to the Committee on Legal Affairs at the EU Parliament on the 20 June 2017 in the context of a Workshop on 'Challenges and potential of private international law in the current migratory context’.
The first study:
Private international law in a context of increasing international mobility: challenges and potential (IP/C/JURI/FWC/2015-002/LOT 1/C5/SC2)
While Private International Law governs private relations between persons coming from or living in different States, migration law regulates the flow of people between States. The demarcation between these two areas of law seems clear, but in practice it is not. Rights related to migration are often linked to private relations (marriage, parentage) or personal status (age). The EU should have a coherent approach in these areas, both internally and in relations with third States. Authorities active in the different areas must coordinate their work.
The second study:
Children on the Move: A Private International Law Perspective (IP/C/JURI/FWC/2015-002/LOT 1/C5/SC1)
The child’s best interests are a primary consideration under international and EU law. EU migration and private international law frameworks regulate child protection, but in an uncoordinated way: the Dublin III and Brussels IIa Regulations are neither aligned nor applied coherently. This should change. In particular, the rules and mechanisms of Brussels IIa should be used to enhance the protection of migrant children. These include rules on jurisdiction to take protective measures, on applicable law, and on recognition and enforcement of protective measures, and mechanisms for cross-border cooperation between authorities.
