HELP in Central Asia
Effective implementation of the ratified Council of Europe Conventions as well as other European and international legal standarts is of paramount importance for enhancing human rights protection in the region and moving towards creating a common legal space. The primary goal of this component is thus to improve knowledge and skills of Central Asia justice professionals in the area of human rights issues and to ensure the application of human rights principles in their daily work. In order to achieve this, full use will be made of the European Programme for Human Rights Education for Legal Professionals (HELP), which is the main educational platform of the Council of Europe for legal professionals, covering various Council of Europe Conventions. In the framework of the Action, a certain number of Central Asian judges, prosecutors and lawyers will be trained based on a selection of HELP courses adapted to the national legal orders and translated into national languages.
