Call for applications for transnational training under the FACILEX project

15 February 2024

APIS Europe, as a partner in the EU-funded FACILEX project, invites legal professionals and researchers interested in criminal law and human rights protection to take part in a transnational training on:

EU Judicial Cooperation in Criminal Matters and EU mutual recognition instruments

Date: July 1-2, 2024

Location: Centre for Judicial Cooperation, European University Institute (EUI) - Florence, Italy

Deadline for applications: March 30, 2024.

This workshop aims to improve knowledge on horizontal harmonization relating to three EU mutual recognition instruments: European Arrest Warrant, European Investigation Order, Reg. 1805/2018 on the mutual recognition of freezing and confiscation orders.

To achieve these objectives, a selection of the most relevant issues revolving around the lack of judicial harmonization will be analyzed during the Transnational Training Workshop. It will be devoted to the analysis of the most relevant case law surrounding the three EU mutual recognition systems with special focus on effective judicial protection, procedural rights, and fundamental rights protection.

Each day will be split in two parts: in the first part, 3 renowned practitioners and lecturers will deliver distinguished lectures; in the second part, practical sessions involving case analysis and discussion on hypothetical will be facilitated by working groups activities. In particular, legal analysis of case studies will be conveyed through the explanatory use of the FACILEX online platform, developed within the framework of the project with the active participation of the APIS team. Useful materials for the Working Groups’ activities included in a User Manual will be shared in advance with selected participants.

The applicants must be fluent in English and have a general knowledge of the topic of the workshop. Applications should be submitted to: [email protected]. Detailed information about the training, selection procedure and additional documents to be submitted can be found on the EUI Centre for Judicial Cooperation website - here.
