The summer course “European System of Human Rights Protection” will take place in the heart of Europe, at the border between Poland and Germany at the European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder), Germany from 11 until 22 July.
Topics: European human rights protection system, civil and political rights, economic, social and cultural rights, institutions and mechanisms, security and intercultural dialogue.
Two Week Summer Course will deal in detail specifically, but not exclusively with the European system for the protection of human rights: the Council of Europe, the EU and OSCE. The treatment of the substantive regimes and their specific rights catalogues will be set against the background of a consideration of the philosophical, historical, political, economic and sociological aspects of human rights, and include practical institutional matters such as complaint procedures.
Held in English, the Summer Course will combine lecture and discussion approaches with a maximum number of 50 participants. Furthermore, at the end of the course, a moot court will take place. This allows to practice skills in relation to real case studies. At the end of the Summer Course participants get a certificate of participation with 10 ECTS points.
