The CEC Summer School on Human Rights offers churches and church-related organisations the opportunity to train members on human rights issues. The school focusses on the legal, societal, political, and institutional dimensions of a different theme each year. Participants benefit from meeting and dialoguing with a network of CEC Member Churches and learn from interaction with prominent human rights experts.
The 2017 Summer School will take place in Palermo (Italy) from 2 to 6 July in partnership with the Churches’ Commission for Migrants in Europe. The 2017 Summer School is devoted to the issue of migration, refugees, asylum seekers, and human trafficking. For a draft version of the programme as of 22 March 2017, please click here.
