The Odysseus Academic Network is a network of legal experts in immigration and asylum in Europe. The network is a platform for the exchange of knowledge and expertise between academics, policy-makers, practitioners and NGOs in the field of immigration and asylum law and policy. The Odysseus Network has coordinated research projects on the EU Return Directive, alternatives to detention, and a comparative study on the transposition of ten EU directives by Member States, including directives on reception conditions, qualification, and family reunification. The network has also produced a number of publications on subjects such as vulnerability in EU law on asylum, subsidiary protection, and free movement of persons in the EU. Every year, a summer school is organised in Brussels on European immigration and asylum law and policy.
