Mobile Futures, in cooperation with SILE and the Finnish Human Rights Centre, invites you to the virtual roundtable discussion:
The Finnish Human Rights Centre recently published a report on the implementation of the Finnish rules on circumvention of entry provisions in the Aliens Act (Section 36.2) in the case law of the Finnish Administrative Courts. The report showed that the openly defined provision in question is applied to many different situations, that the public interest at stake in the provision is unclear and that the threshold for application is obscure. On the basis of the report, it is possible to consider what rule of law issues are
related to the circumvention of entry provisions. How much authority discretion can be allowed before legal application becomes arbitrary? Which groups are particularly affected by the provision in question? What does the existence and application of the rule in question tell us about migration governance and bordering practices?
