Updates on the Global Study component within the project “Advancing Child Rights Strategic Litigation” (ACRiSL), a project coordinated by the University of Nottingham

The Global Campus is an academic partner of the University of Nottingham Human Rights Law Centre working on the project “Advancing Child Rights Strategic Litigation”. This project seeks to use legal cases as a tool to bring legal and social change in terms of children’s enjoyment of their rights and focuses on different thematic areas. The component on children deprived of liberty is led by our colleague Chiara Altafin, Research Manager at the GCHR. This component of the project primarily aims at providing children’s rights strategic litigation practitioners in Europe and Asia with support, whether financial or i.e., in the form of possible amicus curiae / third party interventions or technical capacity on argumentation. Through this work the project partners intend to enforce the implementation of the Global Study recommendations on migration-related detention of children by means of strategic litigation before domestic, regional and international courts and monitoring bodies. In this context our colleague highlights two ongoing collaborations with lawyers from Arsis in Greece as well as Aditus Foundation and Jesuit Refugee Service in Malta. For instance, on-going work is being carried out on a new application against Malta before the European Court of Human Rights.
