The ICJ-Geneva Bar Association Cooperation Initiative project gains momentum!

Part of the active ‘International Cooperation Initiative’ between the ICJ and the Geneva Bar Association, a full house conference, attended by Geneva Lawyers, took place tonight at the Palais de Justice of Geneva. The theme was the criminalization of helping migrants for humanitarian motives.

Massimo Frigo, Senior Legal Adviser of the ICJ’s Europe and Central Asia Programme presented this complex issue with regard to the existing protocols of European directives and the reluctance of EU states to respect them.

The conference Le délit de solidarité en droit Suisse, européen et mondial was the first of many collaborations to come on subjects of common interest between the ICJ and the Geneva legal community.
