Training NGO lawyers on the Schengen Borders Code and fundamental rights

The agency trained NGO lawyers in Hungary and from neighbouring EU Member States with an external EU border, following an invitation from the UN Refugee Agency.

The training session focused on the Schengen Borders Code, fundamental rights and access to international protection.

The event aimed at expanding UNHCR’s and its partners’ legal toolbox used for strategic litigation, by involving the Schengen Borders Code as a useful legal instrument in these endeavours.

It was organised by the UNHCR’s Regional Representation for Central Europe. It took place in Budapest on 29 March.
