FAIRNESS

Implementation of the Stockholm Roadmap in Cases of Terrorism and Radicalization

 

Legal Cases and National Questionnaires

FAIRNESS will conduct a quantitative and qualitative empirical research on different legal cases and stakeholder groups will be conducted. The surveys adopt a longitudinal approach and, for this reason, they will be 2, one in each project year in 2019 and in 2020/21. Results will be comparatively analysed.

FAIRNESS combines desktop research (quantitative data gathering, and collection of legal measures adopted, and sentences given for terror related-cases) with qualitative expert interviews (through questionnaires). Both outcomes will be cross-analysed using hermeneutical methods such as content analysis and SPSS or a similar statistics programme; a third level of analysis is performed through the comparison of the quantitative and qualitative data. A Europe-wide online survey will be developed. The aim is to collect solid data on legal first-line-practitioners concerning their practical experience in addressing different constraints and issues related to the implementation of the Stockholm Roadmap in relation to the EAW and Framework Directive for terror-related crimes. The questionnaire will be distributed by the consortium partners and through the networks of the associations of profession. The data will be analysed in a multivariate data analysis. This WP is subdivided into two waves: first wave 4 months (year 1) and second wave 4 months (year 2).

FAIRNESS will conduct a legal research which will fuse and consolidate data gained in WP 2, step 1 and 2, to explore the legal interrelations of the Stockholm Roadmap, and particularly Directives (EU) 2016/343, 2016/800, 2016/1919, 2013/48/ EU and Framework Decision 2002/584/JHA, in relation to CT policies and practices. The comparative research includes the living jurisprudence emanating from the CJEU, ECtHR, CCPR and CRC in addition to the judgements of the national courts at different stage of the proceedings and compared with ‘soft’ intl. guidelines.

As an example: European Prison Rules, the CoE EuropeanProbation Rules, European Rules for Juvenile Offenders, the CM recommendation concerning foreign prisoners; Recommendation on electronic monitoring, on dangerous offenders and the guidelines for prison and probation services regarding radicalisation and violent extremism adopted by the CoE-CM on 2-3-2016 and other UN guidelines). This WP is subdivided into two waves: first wave 4 months (year 1, M8-M12, Del 3.1) and second wave 4 months (year 2, M17-M21, Del 3.2 and 3.3)=Total 8 months.

Communities of Practices

This WP will implement 5 Judicial Communities of Practice (CoPs) in the partner countries to explore key topics of the implementation of the different directives and framework decisions. CoPs are co-creative laboratories where multi-agencies and multidisciplinary experts meet firstly face-to-face in a 2 day guided panel and then work to an IT-Platform to generate creative projects, solutions and proposals on specific topic.

Each CoP should end with a ‘Problems detection and Solutions suggestion’ in the form of a factsheet, resulting from the cooperative co-creation work. Each CoP will contribute to the design, implementation and testing of a specific module of the toolkit, which will be massively delivered in WP5. CoP participants will cover all 27 MSs and will be reimbursed for their effort. Each panel will be composed by practitioners representing the whole judicial pipeline (investigators, prosecutors, judges, lawyers, media, NGOs, policy-makers) to see the single issue from different angles. Each CoP will have a coordinator responsible for the management of the platform. Results of these co-creative activities will be disseminated through an open platform, which is part of the deliverables of this WP. The open platform solution (a) defines key use cases, specifies core digital security solutions and designs mockups for the platform and the planned solutions. In this first task, key use-cases will be defined, and core digital security solutions will be specified. It will also include the design of mockups for the platform and the design of solutions that are planned; (b) develops the framework for the toolkit as a service (PaaS) for law professionals with intelligent APIs to include third party contributions. This task aims at developing the architecture of the toolkit. It will be developed by using intelligent APIs in order to include third party contributions.

In this WP the partners and the experts involved in the CoP will deliver the toolkit extensively at MS and EU levels. In this WP, an ambitious multi-channel approach will effectively address different target groups of the project. The communication of the project outcomes will be done through the toolkit, online training seminars for trainers and for final beneficiaries, the project website, project newsletters,dissemination of the factsheets, and strong social media presence. The Court of Emilia-Romagna and the Italian Ministry of Justice, in cooperation with all partners, will launch a massive recruitment campaign among judges and legal practitioners for the participation to the online training courses.

Furthermore, the outcomes will be presented to the scientific community in publications. The first-line-practitioner-toolkits will additionally be presented at events, which are attended by this stakeholder group. A detailed communication strategy will be developed by the consortium at the beginning of the project. It will guarantee the long-term dissemination and a sustainable use of the project outcomes. In order to push the dissemination of the toolkit, a seminar will be organised, where the FAIRNESS outcomes are promoted and where judicial professionals belonging to key international and Europea

PARTICIPATE IN THE ACTIVITIES WE ARE PREPARING

FAIRNES WILL ORGANIZE 5 COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICES AND 4 TRAINING OF TRAINERS

Communities of Practices and Training of Trainers will be great opportunities to live the FAIRNESS experience together with other European professionals like yourself. The Communities of Practices will be organizaed in Portugal, Italy, Germany, Bulgaria and the Netherland and will be held in 2020. 

DO NOT MISS THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONTRIBUTE TO FAIRNESS TODAY

FAIRNES WILL ORGANIZE 5 COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICES AND 4 TRAINING OF TRAINERS

Throughout this exercise, you will be asked a number of questions on your professional experience and opinions, specifically concerning terror-related criminal proceedings and the application of procedural rights. This survey is a central activity for the FAIRNESS project, a European Commission funded transnational project. The consortium behind it is highly heterogeneous, a characteristic that goes hand in hand with the project’s aim to obtain a holistic and inclusive insight of the topic.
