The Centre for Migration Law seeks to become a national and international centre of skills and excellence in the field of migration law, by way of its teaching and its research. Besides the CDM members’ activities in these areas, the Centre leads a number of common projects aimed at the wider public (authorities, practitioners, NGOs, doctoral researchers, and students).

As of December 2014, the Centre offers a Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Migration Law. Its objective is to teach advanced practical and scientific knowledge of migration law at national and international (including European) levels, as well as knowledge about migratory processes, in the context of the social sciences. It also introduces students to the fundaments of migration policy. This continuing education programme is targeted at practitioners in the domain of migration, be they legal experts wishing to add to their knowledge, or specialists wishing to acquire basic legal knowledge.
