Training in Athens on the rights of migrant children

Today, the ICJ and Greek Council for Refugees are holding a training for lawyers on the rights of migrant children and on accessing international human rights mechanisms in Athens.
The training aims to support the strategic use of national and international mechanisms to foster migrant children’s access to justice.

The training will take place over the course of two days: 26-27 April 2017.

The training will focus on accessing the international mechanisms in order to protect and promote the rights of migrant children, the child’s procedural rights including the right to be heard and immigration detention.

A practical case analysis will be part of the training. Trainers include experts from the AIRE Center, UNICEF, UNHCR, Greek Ombudsman, the ICJ and experienced NGO lawyers.

The training is based on draft training materials prepared by the ICJ (to be published in the second half of 2017) and the ICJ Practitioners Guide no. 6: Migration and International Human Rights Law.

It is organized as part of the FAIR project co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme of the European Union and OSIFE.

As part of the project, this training follows the trainings on the rights of migrant children in SpainItalyBulgaria and Malta. Trainings in Ireland and Germany will follow later this year.
