Migration resources section for EJTN Members now available

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

  • EJTN’s new Migration Resources section includes a large selection of national and EU training programmes on a broad range of migration issues, covering criminal, civil, administrative and general EU law aspects of judicial training on migration and asylum law.
  • The collection provides a relevant comparison of different national judicial training programmes and key topics addressed by national trainings institutions across the EU.
  • A practical tool for easy and transparent access to training formats and methodologies, aimed at assisting EJTN Members in developing national trainings in this field.

Thanks to the overwhelming response by EJTN Members to EJTN’s call for contributions, the EJTN has made available a wide-range of EU and national judicial training programmes on migration issues on its new Migration Resources section, which is available to EJTN Members in the Members’ area of the EJTN website.

This unique collection seeks to equip national training institutions with the necessary tools to design and implement judicial training curriculums in this field, by providing them with easy and transparent access to the programmes being implemented by their counterparts in other EU Member States. It will allow all institutions to compare key training topics, assess different training formats, expert-pools and methodologies, and adapt these to their own national training needs.

The Migration Resources section covers over 90 training programmes on migration issues, and is divided into two sections: National Training Programmes and Supra-National Training Programmes. All programmes are available in their original language, as well as in English and in French, where possible.

The collection covers a wide range of training topics, from general EU law on migration and asylum, to criminal law related to migration, the protection of fundamental rights of migrants and asylum seekers, and intercultural competences and integration processes.
