2021 HELP Network e-Conference, organised under the auspices of the Hungarian Presidency of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe

Strasbourg, 1-2 July 2021

The HELP Annual Network Conference is the main gathering of the HELP Network members and partners. It provides a forum to present the latest HELP courses developed and key HELP projects. It is also a forum for discussion on how to enhance the impact of human rights training and how to improve effective co-operation among all members and partners of the HELP Network.

In 2021, due to the limitations caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, the HELP Network Conference will exceptionally be held in a blended format. It will be fully streamed online at a link that will be subsequently published on this page. Interpretation in English, French and Russian will be available.
