The training on "Tutela dei Diritti Umani presso la Corte europea dei diritti dell'Uomo"
The opening session of the training seminar on La tutela dei Diritti Umani presso la Corte Europea dei Diritti dell’Uomo has taken place on 27 February, at 9:30 at the EIUC premises, Monastery of San Nicolò, Venice-Lido.
The seminar, organised by the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation, benefits from the patronage and active support of the Consiglio Nazionale Forense, Ordine degli Avvocati di Venezia, Fondazione Feliciano Benvenuti, Unione delle Camere Penali Italiane, Camera Penale Veneziana “Antonio Pognici” and of the Council of Europe Office in Venice. More than 60 Italian laywers are attending the training seminar focused on the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).
The opening session was chaired by Fabrizio Marrella, Dean of the Human Rights Village (HRV-EIUC); by Rinaldo Romanelli, member of the Giunta dell’Unione delle Camere Penali Italiane; by Federico Cappelletti, Secretary General of Camera Penale Veneziana; and by Roberto Giovanni Conti, Judge and Adviser to the Italian Court of Cassation.
During the opening, the representatives of the organising institutions and speakers have stressed the importance of the ECHR. “Legal systems have a solid human rights reference point to help them when enacting and interpreting laws” and “for the first time an international treaty on human rights was set up with a Court to enforce decisions” said Judge Conti.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn and exchange best practices about the mechanisms of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). The seminars further aims to prepare Italian lawyers, judges and legal practitioners on the practical implementation of the European Convention of Human Rights.
