Workstream 5 aims to make known to relevant bodies, both in individual member states and in the EU, of the experiences resulting from the implementation of the European Standars of teaching and training fundamental human rights to criminal justice personnel and the actual implementation of the pilot training courses in true learning environments.  The aim is to incorporate the conclusions that resulted from the pilot implementation of human rights education on legal, judicial and administrative staff and the feedback from all relevant stakeholders to the final European set of standards in teaching and training the principles laid down in Art 6 of the Treaty on European Union.



Workstream 4 aims at the delivery of pilot training programmes in each of the participating countries in order to check the European Standards that were developed in Workstream 3.

Workstream 4 aims at the construction and the amelioration of the standards for the education and training on the field of fundamental rights which were formulated in Workstream 3.  The goal is to check the effective communication to trainees at all educational levels, of stereotype-free, innovative thinking and professional behaviour about policing, arrests and controls, judging and sentencing, convicted person treatment during detention and probationary periods. 

The pilot training programmes will be organised in the four (4) participating countries:

- Cyprus

- Greece

- Italy

- Romania


Workstream 3 aims at the elaboration of a set of European standards and an integrated educational and training system for criminal justice personnel on fundamental human rights, which could possibly adopted by the relevant EU members states' educational institutions.



Workstream 2 has the objective to examine the various crucial institutional and extra-legal principles, attitudes and problems as they are perceived and evaluated by the professionals working in the criminal justice agencies’ personnel professional training and educational systems. The aim is to identify the positive and negative effects of these crucial educational and training patterns in the cultural transmission and education and sensitisation of that personnel in the fundamental and human rights issues.

Workstream 2 involves the conducting of interviews and discussions with experts in order to unveil the criminal justice agencies' personnel attitudes, considerations and opinions.


Workstream 1 aims at the description and identification, on a national and on a comparative perspective, of the various institutional principles and problems which are present in the training and educational systems of criminal justice agencies’ personnel in relation to the cultivation of fundamental rights ethos and their actual recognition.

Two (2) types of documentation will be collected: 

(1)    the first type is related to EU directives, policies and legislation on target group’s education and training, in general, and according to the Art 6 of the Treaty of EU (Fundamental Rights) as well as to the police, courts, prison and probation personnel main educational and training systems of the participating countries. 

(2)    the second type is related to the various NGOs reports, Court Decisions, National and European institutions’ reports which describe criminal justice personnel education and professional training deficiencies and problems connected to infringements on fundamental human rights during the exercise of their authority. 

Both types of documentation will aid the elaboration of national reports focusing on the structure and the context of the criminal justice personnel study programmes.
Workstream 1 also involves a comparative analysis on the context of the criminal justice personnel study programmes.
