Training in Dublin on the rights of migrant children

Today, the ICJ and the Immigrant Council of Ireland are holding a training for lawyers on the rights of migrant children and on accessing international human rights mechanisms in Dublin.

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: 25-26 May 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, the right to family life, access to housing and education and immigration detention.

A practical case analysis will be part of the training. Trainers include Róisín Pillay, Director of ICJ’s Europe Programme, Dr. Patricia Brazil, BL and Joris Sprakel, Hague University.

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 SpainItalyBulgariaMalta and Greece. Training in Germany and Strategic litigation Retreat will follow later this year.
