Deadline: 21 May, 2015

Venue: Monastery of San Nicolò, Venice Lido (Italy), 19-21 June 2015
Two years into the endorsement of the “Dublin III regulation”, international protection provided by the EU to the increasing number of asylum seekers fleeing their countries is being challenged. Efficacy of these norms and policies is under scrutiny, as well as the complex relationship between the EU and its member states when it comes to concrete implementation. Is Dublin III meeting human rights concerns emerging from the migration crisis? What are the dilemmas faced by European lawyers and legal practitioners when it comes to everyday application of EU and – more broadly – international legal standards on asylum? How ready are EU member states to adequately receive individuals and families transferred from one state to the other under the Dublin regime? Are the remedies set forth to prevent abuses accessible and effective?
The training seminar on “Dublin III, two years on. Asylum seekers and refugees in the EU and beyond” is set to analyze these important questions. It is designed to provide participants with an overview of the European asylum system and foster cross-border cooperation and networking among legal practitioners from all EU and non-EU countries involved in the application of the relevant national, EU and international standards. Mutual trust between legal practitioners from all EU countries is essential to ensure the coherent application of EU legislation across the Union as well as to provide a platform for exchange of good practices and, where relevant, critical analysis and reform proposals.
The course aims at reaching this primary objective by involving distinguished scholars and practitioners in a thorough overview of the legal instruments at stake, and facilitate comparative analysis of experiences and challenges.
The ultimate objectives of the training seminar are to:
- provide participants with an overview of the common European asylum system and of the existing international human rights instruments setting universal principles on asylum, refugee status, migration;
- allow a comparative analysis of this normative system;
- create a forum for exchange of best practices;
- foster cross-border cooperation and networking among legal practitioners from all EU countries involved in the implementation of the EU norms.
