Two-days-and-a-half training co-organised by the EJTN and the European Network of contact points in respect of persons responsible for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes (Genocide Network), focused on the prosecution of core international crimes in the context of Europe’s migrant crisis.
The learning outcomes of this training include (a) an improved understanding of substantive international criminal law, as well as of the most relevant international and national jurisprudence therein, (b) an advanced understanding of criminal liability in this field, (c) knowledge of the practical issues involved in building a case on core international crimes and the ensuing evidentiary challenges, and (c) practical knowledge of the instruments of judicial cooperation within the EU and of the applicable international treaties.
The training will combine lectures with workshops and plenary debriefings aimed at improving the participants’ practical skills, pursuant to a ‘learn-by-doing’ methodology. It will provide participants with the opportunity to learn more about the legal systems and investigative approaches of their colleagues in different EU Member States, and will serve as a platform for the exchange of best practices on the management of complex cases. Participants will be assisted by national and international experts in this field.
