This book provides an assessment of migration, mobility of people, minorities and border controls in the European Union and in EU-Canada relations. Furthermore it examines the wide issue of international relations, citizenship and minority discrimination through the lens of the case study of European Roma who seek refugee status in Canada on account of their persecution in Europe. It reveals how modern democracies such as the Czech Republic can find themselves in contradictory positions concerning their citizens when these are looking for protection abroad. This volume presents the final results of the research project 'Migration and Asylum in Europe and EU-Canada Relations', funded by the European Commission under the call 'Public diplomacy and outreach in European Union and EU-Canada relations'.
