The dichotomy between expulsion and return
Jean-Pierre Cassarino
Professor Jean-Pierre Cassarino has more than twenty years of experience in comparative politics. His research interests and publications focus on patterns of international cooperation and modes of norm diffusion and policy transfers in dynamic regional consultative processes, especially with reference to the management of migration and borders. He is most interested in comparatively analyzing policy design and implementation as well as in how policy transfers are administered, and often readjusted, through processes of bilateral and multilateral consultations between the EU and third countries.
