The Union of European Lawyers is holding its eleventh Congress in Palma de Mallorca, under the title of "New Aspects of Human Rights in Europe". The Congress will deal with problems that derive from the application of the Treaty of Schengen, described by immigration experts as "problematic". The treaty was designed to abolish border controls between countries that signed up to it in 1995 - the signatories were Belgium, France, Germany, Holland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Spain. The congress will run from 29-31 May, with conferences and round-table discussions on free circulation of citizens within the EU, juridical guarantees and the liberty of the foreign subject within the EU, private property, tourism, and social security and the environment.
