The gist of an in-person course edited for the duration of a film, divided into 7 micro-lessons as long as a coffee break

(above all, ON DEMAND)

“Between 2014 and 2015, a very particular episode happened which had no media coverage. 69 Nigerians were rescued at sea, they disembarked in Lampedusa and were taken directly to the CIE (Identification and Expulsion Centre) in Montecaleria. At that stage no one had informed them about what they could do and what could happen. [...] Many of these women were in particular conditions - related to gender, sex and living conditions. This has allowed us to better study how gender conditions are elaborated within the right to asylum in Italy.” Says the lawyer Tatiana Montella, who collaborates with the immigration and citizenship law clinic of the Roma Tre University. She deals with criminal law, immigration law and gender violence. He collaborates with two anti-violence centers for consultancy in criminal matters.

Montella's testimony presents us with some questions: how adequate is the legal notion of "refugee" to the protection of women who, due to well-founded fear of suffering gender violence, in particular sexual and domestic violence, are fleeing their country? of origin? If we want to analyze the Italian regulatory framework relating to international protection for reasons of persecution related to gender, is it updated with respect to the recent debate that distinguishes the notion of sex from that of gender? And how do the legal instruments at our disposal fit into the protection of the political, civil and social rights of women victims of trafficking?

On the occasion of the " Workshop on International Protection: prerequisites, access and protections " of INTERSOS Lab, held by the lawyer Tatiana Montella together with the lawyer professor Jacopo di Giovanni, these issues were explored in depth. The contents of the workshop were then edited in our micro-training " Focus on international protection from a gender perspective ", accessible on-demand from the Reserved Area of the e-learning platform . The course is divided into 6 pills, to be followed between one coffee break and another, with legislative references accompanied by the examination of concrete cases of trafficking or gender violence. The definition of refugee and the prerequisites, procedures and protections relating to the right to asylum, as well as the hard and soft law tools for protection from trafficking, are explored in depth. In just an hour and a half in total, it allows you to acquire practical skills thanks to a simulation with feedback from the lawyer Montella.

For participation, there are no specific prerequisites. A basic knowledge of international law terminology, acquired through study or field experience, is desirable. The course is in Italian, but knowledge of the English language is required which allows the student to read and understand teaching materials.

The Certificate of Attendance is issued automatically at the end of the micro training.
