ELENA’s 30th anniversary advanced course on legal avenues for strengthening international protection in Europe will take place on Friday 30 October and Saturday 31 October 2015 in the Royal Hotel Carlton in Bologna, Italy.

The course will provide practical insights on the various legal remedies that can be used to ensure better protection standards in Europe. It will focus on bringing asylum cases to the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union as well as exploring lesser used avenues such as UN and other Council of Europe mechanisms for advancing the rights of those in need of international protection. The event will also cover the implementation of ECtHR judgments, EC infringements procedures and monitoring Member States asylum systems. There will also be three thematic practical workshops focusing on legal remedies in Dublin Regulation cases, family reunification and detention cases.

Interested participants should register by Friday 25 September to secure a place. However, given the limited places available, interested persons are recommended to reserve their place as soon as possible.
