Citizenship matters: the participation of young women and minorities in
Euro-Med youth projects (20/06/2006)

This report deals with two fundamental dimensions of human life: the
individual's right to recognition, security and protection - necessary
prerequisites in order for each and every one of us to be able to live
'unique and free'; and the right for collectives of various kinds -
ethnie or religious groups, nations and minority groups alike - to be
heard and listened to in an unbiased and harmonious dialogue: the tree
and the forest." With these words, Ingrid Ramberg Leads us into the
proceedings of the training seminar on participation of women and
minorities in Euro-Med youth projects. These themes are crucial to
Euro-Med relations, not least because they are often a cause for
misunderstanding or for the projection and expression of phobias and
prejudice. The report succeeds in capturing the essence of the issues
from a Personal and social level. The experiences of this seminar are
unrepeatable, but hopefully the lessons can be of inspiration and
support to others who venture into imagining bridges in landscapes
dominated by canyons. Ingrid Ramberg is chief editor at the
Multicultural Centre in Botkyrka, Sweden. She has edited and authored
other publications for the Council of Europe, namely on women, violence
and Islamophobia. This project is carried out within the framework of
the Partnership on Euro-Mediterranean youth training between the Council
of Europe (North-South Centre and Directorate of Youth and Sport) and
the European Commission, aimed at providing further quality training and
learning opportunites for youth workers and youth leaders active in
Euro-Mediterranean youth projects.

Gentium Coimbrigae Centre and the Faculty of Law of the University of
Coimbra and the International Association of Constitutional Law (IACL).
The reports analyses the specific features of international human rights
treaties; the impact of state succession on these treaties; the
territorial scope of human rights obligations; the position of human
rights treaties in the national legal systems; the impact on the
national systems of the obligation to comply with the judgments of the
European Court of Human Rights; the criteria for establishing the
hierarchy of legal rules in national and international law; the
difference between jus cogens and core rights; and the protection of
core rights through international jurisdiction or universal domestic
