It is estimated that around 4 million migrants in Europe are undocumented. On the one hand there is the factual presence of undocumented migrants in European states. On the other is the “illegality” of their presence. Political philosopher Joseph Carens claims that regularisation harmonizes these two states, meaning that the legal state gets closer to the state of factual integration of migrants “without papers” into economic and social life.
In the view of preparations of the new Aliens Act in the Czech Republic, it is worth reconsidering the possibility of declaring regularization for migrants living in the Czech Republic without the residence permit. The seminar will include theoretical and practical aspects of regularization, as well as examples from France, Poland or Spain.
