About this Event

The 2020 Advanced ELENA course on ‘Asylum in Europe: ensuring protection and fundamental rights compliance' will take place on Friday 30 October and Saturday 31 October 2020.

Given the growing concerns around COVID-19 and the uncertainty of the restrictions in Marseille, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person component of the ELENA Course 2020. This is not a decision we have taken lightly due to the importance of this opportunity to share vital knowledge however, the health and safety of all the speakers and participants in the ELENA Course is of utmost concern to ECRE.

For the first time, the ELENA Course will take place online!

Participants will have the excellent opportunity to explore the latest developments on asylum and migration law with other practitioners, academics and decision-makers from all over Europe.

This year’s course will offer an in-depth analysis of the latest developments in the CJEU and ECtHR jurisprudence. It will include sessions dedicated respectively to the current challenges of women’s protection and gender-based asylum claims; a panel discussion on the State of emergency and the rule of law in the area of asylum; and an analysis of the implications of biometric and data sharing measures on fundamental rights. Additional sessions will now include discussions on the new EU Pact on Migration and Asylum and addressing statelessness and non-discrimination.

Online participants will also receive a certificate of participation.

Conference programme

The 2020 Advanced ELENA Course is honored to announce the participation of a number of distinguished speakers, including Lorraine Schembri Orland, Judge at the European Court of Human Rights; Louise Hooper, Barrister at the Garden Court Chambers; Nina Murray, Head of Policy & Research, European Network on Statelessness and Gábor Gyulai, Refugee Programme Director, Hungarian Helsinki Committee.

A draft agenda of the course is available on ECRE's website .

Conference details

Online participants will be involved actively in course and a moderator will allow them to ask questions to the speakers through a chat tool. In order to follow the online version of the course, all you need is a computer and a good internet connection.
