The summer school “Family life and 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:

- practical and immediately applicable knowledge, using a multidisciplinary perspective, on the right to private and family life of migrant children, offering also an overview of the relevant case law through case study analysis and a strategic litigation session;

- an overview of challenges that EU and Member States are facing in protecting children rights, such as the impact of Covid-19, climate change, human trafficking and smuggling, birth registration and prevention of statelessness, transition to the adulthood for unaccompanied minors, etc.

The most relevant issues arising from the new EU Pact on Migration and Asylum, from the EU Strategy on the Rights of the Child and from the legislations of the EU Member States will be discussed during the lectures, providing participants with all the relevant teaching materials (regulations, case-law, reports, etc.).

The Course will be based on a participatory methodology, including several case studies and Q&A sessions planned to stimulate the interaction between trainers and trainees and to promote the creation of a network among all the participants. The topics will be analysed adopting an interdisciplinary approach, involving trainers from different disciplines and backgrounds. The training material will be available on a devoted platform and on the MARS website (
