Activities

WORK PACKAGE 1: Activities Preparation

The organizational activities in Work Package 1 are the most appropriate to orgnize the Kick-off meeting. It has been diveided in two parts (Academic and Management) in order separate the two more importants pillars of this Project. On the other hand, the context studies are needed so that the experts from the Programme Country HEIs can tailor their presentations to the specific requirements of the Partner Country HEIs. The studies are feasible since such types of studies are regularly done by the Partner Country HEIs in the regular course of business.

WORK PACKAGE 2: Activities Development

The main activities in Work Package 2 use the seminar method. These are the activities planned for the development phase of this project.

WORK PACKAGE 3: Activities Quality Plan

Regarding the work package 3, it is crucial to build a whole monitoring and assessment system which allows us to measure the quality of the project in order to achieve the goals already set. For that reason, the activities mentioned in Work Package 3 are considered the most appropriate to achieve those results as they head to coordinate all the partner institutions to be involved in the quality control and they foresee a continuous monitoring on every work package of the project.

These activities are considered feasible because, even if they require a periodical effort from the partners, they guarantee the achievement of a suitable quality control. The methodology to do so is deemed also the most appropriate as it has the purpose to be clear and consistent since the very beginning of the project, in order to be affordable for every member to be implemented and ensure its success.

The tool that will measure quality will be built taking into account the European standards on quality in the field of higher education and will be controlled by two independent expert groups, the Internal Quality Control Committee and TOQI, the external auditor.

WORK PACKAGE 4: Dissemination and Exploitation

The activities in Work Package 4 will use the conference method to disseminate, among others, the results of CALESA, through several paper presentations. It is the most appropriate since there is a need to gather the Partner Institutions and the experts in Philippine legal education to maximize CALESA’s impact. It is feasible because the University of Malaga, AdMU and UP regularly host national and international conferences and thus have the organizational capacity to do so.

WORK PACKAGE 5: Activities Management

The work package 5 in the CALESA Project centralises its operations through the management committee. This committee includes the project coordinator, the project manager, and the management technicians. It develops its activity through three fixed meetings per year, although its members are in continuous contact, among themselves and with all the project participants. This ensures correct management, as well as making it possible to foresee the different risks and adopt measures to prevent them. In addition, this WP5 includes the equality gender committee. Therefore it intends to incorporate the gender perspective in law studies in the Philippines.
To do this, certain subjects of the Work Package 2 seminars will be taught from a gender perspective. This will directly contribute to training legal professionals (judges, prosecutors, lawyers) and academics in this field. Likewise, the members of the gender equality committee will ensure that the modification of the curricula includes gender contents. Employing a gender methodology in the teaching of law such as the one that will be carried out during the delivery of the Work Package 2 seminars is essential to achieve ambitious goals as a more egalitarian society and laws. It has been shown that a gender perspective in the teaching of law increases the levels of equality both in law and in society itself.
