INPRIS is a legal think tank

Can the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union help during the constitutional crisis?

25 May 2018. INPRIS began, in cooperation with the Association of Polish Judges IUSTITIA and the Association of Judges THEMIS, a series of seminars for judges on the application of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union

The first seminars - on 25 and 26 May (general seminar and specialised seminar for criminal judges) are held in Gniewino, in the Gdansk region, in cooperation with the Gdańsk branch of the SPP Iustitia

Seminars are run in the form of workshops. After introduction to the Charter of Fundamental Rights and the possibilities of its application, the judges work on specially prepared case studies. With the content of the Charter and its application, we combine the issue of referring preliminary questions to the Court of Justice of the European Union. On the basis of the cases prepared, the judges decide whether the Charter applies in the case, whether the court should refer the question for a preliminary ruling, and if so, the judges suggest the content of the question.

The seminar is attended by judges of district, regional and appellate courts, including from Gdańsk, Sopot, Wejherowo, Bydgoszcz.

The next seminars will be held in cooperation with the Themis Association of Judges in the Cracow region and SPP Iustitia in the Białystok region.


Seminars are held as part of the international project "Judging the Charter" co-financed by the European Union and the Stefan Batory Foundation.
