The summer school “Economic, social and cultural rights of migrant children in the European Union” is organized in the framework of the three-year Jean Monnet Module MARS “Migration, Asylum and Rights of Minors”.
The Course aims to provide a comprehensive training on economic, social and cultural rights of migrant children, with particular reference to international covenants, regional treaties and EU law. A particular attention will be devoted to the case law of the European Court of Human Rights and the European Union Court of Justice and to the current challenges for the protection of migrant children’s rights, such as the impact of Covid-19, climate change, human trafficking and smuggling.
In particular, the Course has the following educational objectives:
- offering an advanced insight on the international and EU law on immigration and asylum, with a particular reference to international covenants and regional treaties (such as the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the UN Refugee Convention, the European Convention on Human Rights);
- providing practical and immediately applicable knowledge, using a multidisciplinary perspective, on the economic, social, cultural of migrant children, offering also an overview of the relevant case law through case study analysis;
- offering an overview of challenges that EU and Member States are facing in protecting children’s rights, such as the impact of Covid-19, climate change and environmental rights, human trafficking and smuggling, socio-economic discrimination, transition to the adulthood for unaccompanied minors, etc.
The most relevant issues arising from the EU Pact on Migration and Asylum, from the EU Strategy on the Rights of the Child (2021-2024), from the EU Child Guarantee and from the CoE Strategy for the Rights of the Child (2022-2027) will be discussed during the lectures, providing participants with all the relevant teaching materials (regulations, case-law, reports, etc.).
The training material will be available on a devoted training platform and on the MARS website (www.mars.santannapisa.it). Participants will have access to on-line resources ahead of the sessions, so as to favour their active participation during classes and improve the learning experience.
