We are pleased to announce the dates for this year’s HELP Network Conference which will take place on Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 June 2017.
The conference will be held at the Council of Europe’s headquarters in Strasbourg in the Palais de l’Europe.
The title for this year’s conference will be “HELP for Friendly Justice”.
The HELP Network, is the only peer-to-peer European Human Rights Training Network entrusted with the implementation of paragraph 9.vi of the 2012 Brighton Declaration, is composed of representatives from National Training Institutions for Judges and Prosecutors and Bar Associations of the 47 member states of the Council of Europe. EJTN, as well as the main international associations of judges, prosecutors and lawyers (CCBE, FBE, IAJ, etc.) are partners of the Network.
The Conference provides every year a forum for discussions among all members and partners on ways of enhancing training results and concrete implementation at the national level of the European Convention on Human Rights and on how to improve an effective co-operation among all national and international institutions.
Finally, the annual Network Conference constitutes an important occasion to discuss bi-laterally and regionally the co-operation between the Council of Europe HELP Programme and its partner institutions.
