Concentrating on the key measures concerning both the rights ofthird-country nationals to enter and stay in the EU, and the EU's construction of illegal immigration, it provides a detailed and critical discussion of EU and ECHR migration and refugee law.Rights of admission include three categories of entrants: labour migrants, family migrants, and asylum seekers and refugees.
