Numerous authentic documents and videos covering the work of relevant European institutions were used. The French and German advisors of the Minister of the Interior brought their national perspective and experience of negotiating at EU level.
During the first half of 2018, the teams presiding Council working parties in the field of Home Affairs will include the course participants.
