The EIUC launches a new training seminar on “Dublin III, two years on "Asylum seekers and refugees in the EU and beyond”

The European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation will deliver from 19 to 21 June 2015 an innovative training seminar focusing on asylum and refugee legislation titled “Dublin III, two years on. Asylum seekers and refugees in the EU and beyond”.

In 2013, the Dublin III Regulation entered into force with a view to discipline the EU legal framework for establishing the criteria and mechanisms for determining the member state responsible for examining an asylum application lodged in one of the member states by a third country national or a stateless person. As such it plays a crucial importance within the EU system of protection of asylum seekers, and is to be mastered by legal professionals operating in this field. 

The training programme is targeted on legal practitioners (lawyers, judges, legal scholars, legal experts working for NGOs, etc.) involved in the implementation of asylum and refugee policies, and aims at providing them with tools for better understanding and use of the Dublin III regulation and of the other relevant international and European legal instruments governing this highly sensitive policy area.


The training programme is set to meet this objective through delivery of interdisciplinary classes providing an overview on the international legal standards at stake, but most of all through the analysis of case studies, and professional experience emerging from the same participants. The course will be conducted by internationally renowned experts such as Paolo De Stefani, researcher and aggregate professor on international law at the School of Economics and of Political Science, University of Padova; Kristina Touzenis, Programme Manager at the International Organization for Migration (IOM), and Lorenzo Trucco, President and co-founder of A.S.G.I, the Italian Lawyers’ Association for Legal Studies on Immigration.

The programme is taught entirely in English and will place a great emphasis on nurturing a cross-border judicial cooperation among legal practitioners from all countries involved in the implementation of the EU norms. It will take place at the EIUC seat – the Monastery of San Nicolò – in Venice-Lido.
