Title: Agenda of TS 1.4 on 'Access to Justice for the most vulnerable groups' (Vienna, 4 - 6 May 2010)
Activity:Training Sessions
Start Date:04/05/2010
End Date:06/05/2010

This seminar takes place under the first main component of the project “Access to Justice and Legal Aid”. Most experts consider that training is the core issue in any process of change affecting well functioning institutions and good governance. A complete training, balanced and plural, is a prerequisite if the Judiciary wants to be respected and worthy of respect. For this reason, this second phase of the EUROMED JUSTICE II project will play a relevant role through the training activities in order to contribute to strengthening the Euro-Mediterranean justice area. The title of this seminar “Access to justice for the most vulnerable groups” was agreed during the Working Group meetings held on this component. In particular, this session is focused on the position members of vulnerable groups have when seeking justice and the special protection they deserve in the judicial system. In this respect, the different subtopics will enable us to carry out an in-depth analysis of several relevant aspects which are directly linked with ensuring access to justice to members of vulnerable groups. We are going to share the international experts’ opinion and the participants’ approach on these topics from their own perspective, experience and respective competences. Through an in-depth and detailed discussion, we will know the current situation related to the topics under discussion, among others:  “Present and future of access to justice for children”, “Women: a special reference to the right to start legal proceedings”, “Access to justice and disabled people” and “The role of victims during the proceedings”, all of them being main subtopics to be discussed. Thanks to this seminar, we will get to know the different features prevailing in the region and we will learn from each other through an exchange of experiences and views
