The European Court of Human Rights and the Council of Europe’s HELP programme (Human rights Education for Legal Professionals) have released two new training videos in the pilot series COURTalks-disCOURs. The 25-minute videos, based on educational talks from lawyers at the Court, are geared to providing judges, lawyers and other legal professionals, as well as representatives of civil society, with an overview of the Court’s case-law in matters related to asylum and terrorism.
