The Conference of European Churches 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 6th Summer School on Human Rights of the Conference of European
Churches took place from 17 to 20 June 2019 in Lisbon, Portugal. In cooperation with the Portuguese Christian Council of Churches, participants from different national, ethnic and religious backgrounds were given an opportunity to study together and receive interdisciplinary training on freedom of expression, hate speech, hate crime and how to prevent incitement to hatred in religious contexts.

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.
