The European Programme for Human Rights Education for Legal Professionals (HELP) supports the Council of Europe member states in implementing the European Convention on Human Rights (the Convention) at the national level, in accordance with the Committee of Ministers Recommendation (2004) 4, the 2010 Interlaken Declaration, the 2012 Brighton Declaration and the 2015 Brussels declaration.
This is done by enhancing the capacity of judges, lawyers and prosecutors in all 47 member states to apply the Convention in their daily work. Indeed, legal professionals, who are at the forefront of the protection of human rights, including those of victims, must benefit from high-quality training.
"HELP in 28", funded by the European Union
The European Programme for Human Rights Education for Legal Professionals in the 28 European Union Member States (HELP in the 28) supports legal professionals from the European Union in acquiring the knowledge and skills on how to refer to the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, the European Convention on Human Rights and the European Social Charter.
Furthermore, they will get familiar with the European jurisprudence. It also reinforces the HELP Network of National Institutions and Bar Associations in the European Union.
