Read about the latest news of our project "Breaking the Barriers" in the second issue of the "Breaking the Barriers Newsletter". The Newsletter focuses on the transnational trainings targeting judges and prosecutors that took place in Thessaloniki at the end of November 2021. Furthermore, it highlights upcoming project activities in January 2022: An online panel discussion on the presumption of innocence organized by the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Fundamental and Human Rights on 26.01.2022, 6 pm - 8 pm and an online EU conference organized by the project lead CECL on 28.01.2022, 9 am - 12.15 pm.
The project will last until February 2022 and enables 120 judges and prosecutors to participate in transnational training courses on procedural rights for suspects and accused persons (EU Directives 2010/64, 2012/13, 2013/48, 2016/343). The target group are primarily judges and public prosecutors, who have so far not been able to participate in transnational training courses due to language barriers. The training courses are concentrated in three EU Member States (Spain, Greece and Austria), as these countries have lower participation rates in transnational training courses in EU law than other EU countries. The training courses are specifically designed for the target groups and follow a participatory and practice-oriented approach, which includes the use of interactive and experiential teaching methods.
