The Social Rights of Irregular Migrants. A Quiet Revolution in European Judicial Discourse

Lieneke Slingenberg is a fellow at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NIAS-KNAW) from February until June 2018. In her project, she investigates the legal reasoning employed by European courts and committees in cases about the social rights of irregular migrants. She will identify general trends, relevant factors for state responsibility and compare the argumentative techniques of the different bodies. In addition, she will analyse this case law from a political-philosophical angle.
