Ferran Davesa at the MasterClass ‘The Future of the Council of Europe’

IES postdoctoral researcher Ferran Davesa was invited to act as a facilitator of the MasterClass ‘The Future of the Council of Europe’, an event organised by the ALL-YOUTH project at the Tampere University (Finland) on 4 February 2019. It consisted of two main parts: 1) a series of expert and academic lectures on the CoE, the European Court of Human Rights and the international system for the protection of human rights; and 2) a hands-on workshop in which the youth participants elaborated a list of Recommendations for the Finnish Presidency of the Council of Europe (21 November 2018 to 17 May 2019). 

The Recommendations were presented to the public during the Rule of Law Conference that took place at the Tampere University on 5 February 2019. A printed copy was symbolically delivered by two young participants of the MasterClass to representatives of the Finnish government.
