International projects

Turiba University is actively expanding its international cooperation, initiating, developing, and implementing various local, national, and international projects.

We believe that the development of the University is inconceivable without innovative initiatives, the creation of new teaching approaches and methods, and without international collaboration. To prepare high-quality new professionals, it is essential for our university to provide opportunities for learning in an international environment, meeting lecturers, and professionals from around the world. Therefore, we realize international projects in collaboration with universities and partners worldwide.

Through these projects, we have developed new and innovative educational resources and tools, published books, organized international conferences, exchange trips, study visits, summer schools, and other activities.

We have extensive experience in international project management and have been actively involved in coordinating projects such as Central Baltic Interreg, Erasmus Mundus, Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program, European Social fund, JUSTICE, NORDPLUS, and ERASMUS+ projects.

CIVIL JUSTICE project “Minor's Right to Information in civil actions – Improving's right to information in cross-border civil cases” - MiRI

In January 2020 Turiba University in partnership with partners Genova University (Italy), Valensia University (Spain), Defence for Children International (Italy), International Private Law Institute (Bulgaria), European Family and Inheritance Law Association (Italy) started the project “Minor's Right to Information in civil actions – Improving's right to information in cross-border civil cases”, co-financed by European Union CIVIL JUSTICE programme.

Partners will carry out an in-depth legal study on European Union (EU) and national law in cross-border family cases. The aim of the research is to improve children's rights to information in cross-border civil cases affecting children's interests. The universities involved in the research will collect and analyse decisions of law enforcement authorities, mainly courts, to clarify methods how children's rights to information in cross-border family cases are granted. Project partners will compare case-law of EU Member States and collect the best practice materials, which will be disseminated at the end of the project in the form of academic recommendations.
One of the objectives of the project is to improve and harmonize case-law of EU Member States so that children can effectively and appropriately receive information about the legal proceedings in which they are directly or indirectly involved in cross-border family law issues. In addition, an international database with EU law and case-law materials will be developed.

At the beginning of the project, the professors of the Turiba University will collect and analyse decisions of Latvian courts in cross-border family law cases, and analyse them in order to determine according to which standards of material and procedural law children obtain information regarding legal proceedings. Professors will survey representatives of the courts and custody courts in order to obtain information on the best practice in these cases.
Project results will be presented in several national and one international conference. Conference in Riga will take place on the end of 2021.
Project is co-financed by European Union CIVIL JUSTICE programme, project number: 831608
