The working language of the Summer School Program was English and the participants presented the legal situations in their countries and precedent judgments of their Courts on “Freedom of Expression and Freedom of Organization”. The participants had the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience through the discussions and question & answer sessions.
Such social activities as bowling tournament, paper marbling show (traditional Turkish art) etc. throughout the program have contributed to developing the friendship and dialogue among the members of the Association.
