UniDem Campus - Interregional and transfrontier co-operation

22/02/2010 - 25/02/2010

Trieste, Italy - The first in 2010 UniDem seminar on “Interregional and transfrontier co-operation: promoting democratic stability and development”

The UniDem Campus, a programme for legal training of the civil servants of Eastern European countries was launched in 2000 by the Venice Commission with the financial support of the Region Friuli-Venezia Giulia government. Since it has been a great success: nearly 3000 civil servants have been trained.

This activity is intended for officials from national administrations of 16 Eastern European countries who are invited, following the seminar, to pass on the insights they have gained to their colleagues in their respective countries. The one-week seminars provide training on subjects such as democratisation and human rights, rule of law and law enforcement, institution building as well as European integration.

Emergency powers -
 What standards?

 


During the current Covid-19 pandemic, national governments are taking exceptional measures to slow down the spread of the virus. On numerous occasions, the Venice Commission examined the limits of such emergency powers. The Commission has consistently underlined that State security and public safety can only be effectively guaranteed in a democracy which fully respects the rule of law. Even in genuine cases of emergency situations, the rule of law must prevail.
