The conference, convened by the SHARED Project team, Prof Violeta Moreno-Lax (PI), Dr Mirentxu Jordana (Girona) and Ms Laura Salzano (Barcelona), will feature keynote addresses by MEP, Prof Tineke Strik (Greens), and MEP, Prof Juan Fernando López Aguilar (S&D, Chair of the LIBE Committee), as well as contributions by key organisations, including Frontex, the EU Fundamental Rights Agency, the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS), Proactiva Open Arms, alongside young researchers and leading academics from all over Europe.

The joint Guidelines on Shared Responsibility in the Context of Integrated Border Management, resulting from the collaboration of project partners and key stakeholders in the field will be presented and discussed at a closing roundtable.
