Summer School: Family life and rights of migrant children in the EU

Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, in collaboration with the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), is organizing an online Summer School on the “Family life and rights of migrant children in the European Union” on 23-25 June, 15-16 and 19-20 July 2021.

It will provide training on the right to private and family life of migrant children within the international and regional framework of human rights and EU law, and current challenges in protecting the rights of migrant children, including in the context of Covid-19. The lectures of the Summer School will also touch upon the EU’s Pact on Migration and Asylum of 2020 and the EU Strategy on the Rights of the Child 2021-2024.

The Summer school will be held in English and is open to professionals, academics, and students who would like to deepen their knowledge of the topic. Participants will be provided with relevant teaching materials which were developed in the FAIR project coordinated by the ICJ on fostering migrant children’s access to rights.

Enrolment must be made by application submitted online by 15 June 2021 and is limited to 40 participants. An early bird discount applies to candidates who register before 6 June 2021, while an exemption from enrolment fees applies to 5 foreign students who are beneficiaries of international protection (refugees and subsidiary protection holders).
