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.
For more information on this programme, including on participating at Palermo, please email Mag. Elizabeta Kitanovic.

Restrictions of freedom of religion or belief are an increasing challenge to the global world and to Europe in particular. The Summer School on Human Rights, hosted by the Italian Protestant Federation on 15-18 September in Palermo, Italy, is an unprecedented response. For the first time, European Churches join forces in order to designate a school on human rights and in particular to freedom of religion or belief.
