On 4 December 2014 the kick-off meeting for the launch of the course on the European Convention on Human Rights and Asylum will be held in Brussels. The pilot course will be launched for a first group of 30 Belgian magistrates and other legal professionals involved in the asylum procedure in Belgium.
The kick-off meeting is organised in close cooperation with the Commissariat Général aux Réfugiés et Apatrides. The Institut de Formation Judiciaire (IFJ), as the HELP Network partner institution in Belgium, is involved in the event as well. The course will be launched under the auspices of the Belgian Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe.
The curriculum has been elaborated jointly by the UNHCR and the Directorate General of Human Rights and Rule of Law of the Council of Europe, through its HELP Programme.
