About the Event:
In cooperation with ICC Albania and with the support of The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Tirana, University of New York Tirana will organize the Academic Seminar “Integrity in Academia” in the context of the Week of Integrity. During this session, panellists will delve into problems of integrity within the education sector as well as what actions have already been taken by academia and other organizations until now. In addition, the panellists will discuss initiatives of state institutions on this matter, the most important needs of the sector, and the gaps that the regulatory framework has in this aspect. Experts will also explore an important recommendation during this seminar: the need to include a course on ethics within each major to increase professional conduct for students studying that major.
In the second session, UNYT will organize the Moot Court that will address the most pertinent and topical questions relating to integrity and international refugee law, drawing on the current crisis situations. It is designed to encourage students to learn and understand the fundamental concepts of human rights, integrity, with a focus in Refugee Law by addressing concrete legal problems and practice their legal argumentation in front of experienced jury members. Main themes of this year’s competition include the right to the integrity of education, right to education; contemporary challenges related to the conduct of hostilities; human rights issues including the principle of non-refulement, refugee law etc.
