This Transnational Training Workshop is intended to study the effectiveness of jurisdictional protection in the field of Asylum and Migration. By focusing on the protection of the fundamental rights of migrants, asylum seekers and beneficiaries of international protection, this workshop aims to enable participants to analyse how the protection of migrants and foreigners can be ensured in the light of article 47 of the Charter of fundamental rights of the European Union and the EU general principles.

A first session will be devoted to effective protection in the event of detention, removal, expulsion or Dublin transfer of migrants by analysing the scope and the impact of Articles 19 and 47 of the EU Charter. The second session will focus more specifically on the right to asylum with a study of both procedural and substantive rights and aspects.

Furthermore, the two training sessions will be followed by a discussion workshop devoted to asylum and migration in times of crisis, with an analysis of challenges raised, on the one hand, by the COVID-19 pandemic, and on the other hand, by national security issues.

This training is addressed to judges and lawyers from all over the EU. The objective is to improve the mutual knowledge of workshop participants regarding similarities and differences between EU Member States in the field of asylum and migration. To this end, both training sessions will consist of a roundtable followed by an interactive group session aimed at stimulating an open discussion on hypothetical cases.

The workshop will take place exclusively in online mode.

All participants selected will be provided with access credentials and instructions in due course.
