A virtual visit to the Council of Europe
Monday 17 May 2021
Since 2016, it is an annual tradition for Middlesex University London and Dubai Law and Politics students to travel to Strasbourg every May to visit the Institutions of the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights and the Parliament of the European Union. The trip gives the opportunity to students of both Campuses to meet and interact, while visiting the European Institutions that are central to their learning material - and this year, we are delighted to also be able to invite students from our Mauritius campus. Private meetings with the Judges of the European Court of Human Rights are always the highlight of the trip!
As we have been unable to visit the Council of Europe in Strasbourg in person this year, we have arranged a virtual visit instead!
