What impact on the international and national scenes for the Council of Europe’s Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse (the Lanzarote Convention)?
Join and find out during our webinar on Monday 4 October 2021, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (CET).
This awareness raising webinar will be opened by Ms Christel De Craim, Chairperson of the Lanzarote Committee, who will recall the essential characteristics of the Lanzarote Convention and outline the main strands of the Committee’s work.
Mr Robert Spano, the President of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), will then present in a keynote speech how the Court has referred to the Convention and its interpretation by the Lanzarote Committee when examining allegations of breaches of the ECHR.
The online awareness raising event will then be divided into two main axes. The first will focus on the impact of the Lanzarote Convention on the case-law and decisions of international bodies, such as the Court of Justice of the European Union, the European Committee of Social Rights and the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child. The second will address the impact of the Lanzarote Convention at national level, with, in particular, examples drawn from case-law (from Norway) and the legislation (from Spain).
The webinar will be broadcasted live on the internet.
