The Unione Forense per la Tutela dei Diritti Umani organises the 19th edition of
the specialisation course “Tutela europea dei diritti umani”.

The course functions as a consolidation and update for legal
practitioners and scholars.

Amongst the various instruments for the protection of human rights there are
the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and the Charter of
Fundamental Rights of the European Union. The former increasingly gained
importance as its principles are enforced and safeguarded by the European Court
of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

The course is in fact dedicated to the study of the court’s functioning, offering
the audience the opportunity to gain more knowledge on its system and
proceedings as well as on the impact it has on the Italian state. The relationship
between the Strasbourg Court and the Luxembourg Court will also be assessed
following the implementation of the Treaty of Lisbon, which made the Charter of
Fundamental Rights legally binding.

The course consists in six sessions, each being three hours long, that will be held
at the Cassa Forense in Rome (Via Ennio Quirino Visconti n. 6/8). It will take
place on the following Fridays: 23 rd November 2018, 30 th November 2018,
7 th December 2018, 14 th December 2018, 21 st December 2018 and 11 th
January 2019.
