On the 29th and 30th October 2010, the UNILU Chair of Comparative Law with the support of the University of Lucerne will host a two-day workshop on Transnational Legal Process and Human Rights.
Object and Theme
Within the broader and currently very topical theme of the ways in which human rights norms are transferred between legal and political systems, the workshop will focus on the following ( non-exhaustive) list of topics:
-Role and Relevance of National Human Rights Traditions in International Law:
- Nature and Impact of International and Transnational Organizations in the Transfer of Human Rights Norms:
- Crossing Borders in Multicultural Societies
- International Constitutionalization and Human Rights
The presentation and discussion of papers is designed to promote reflection and debate between students, researchers and professors while encouraging presents to organize as efficiently as possibly their scholarly work. The workshop is also intended to promote early-stage research and networking synergies.
Students of international, European or comparative law as well as early career researchers are particularly invited to respond to this Call for Papers.
