ACTIONES Multi-Stakeholder Training
Fundamental Rights Strategic Litigation a' la Carte in the EU
Deadline for registration: 1 August 2017
This is the final multi-stakeholder training session of the EU funded ACTIONES project, which targets legal professionals with the aim to explore potential of the Charter of Fundamental Rights as the basis of the strategic litigation. The training puts a specific emphasis on the dynamically growing area of illegal migration and asylum.
The 3-days training is organised around three main areas. The role of the different actors before, during and after litigation, the role of the different instances at the regional and international levels, and the policy implications of strategic litigation; strategic litigation on the basis of selected fundamental rights protected by the EU Charter, such as non-discrimination, consumer protection, environmental rights; highlights of best practices and challenges from own practice. Case studies on procedural issues relating to public interest litigation will be analysed and the learning will be closed by a simulation exercise.
ACTIONES is coordinated by the European University Institute Centre for Judicial Cooperation and involves the following 16 partner institutions: Association of European Administrative Judges, College of Europe, Croatian Judicial Academy, Estonian Supreme Court, EIUC, National Association of the Romanian Bars, Polish National School of Judiciary and Public Prosecution, Romanian National Institute of Magistracy, Slovenian Judicial training Centre, Spanish General Council for the Judiciary, University of Amsterdam, University of Ljubjana, University of Parma, University of Pompeu Fabra, University of Uppsala, Italian School for the Magistracy.
