The program for the tenth annual Minority Rights & Indigenous Peoples Summer School, hosted by the Irish Centre for Human Rights, has now been finalised and can be viewed at http://www.conference.ie/Conferences/index.asp?Conference=17.
Registration will close on June 1st, so please register soon to ensure a place.
The course will take place from June 13-17, 2011 on the campus of the National University of Ireland, Galway, a charming small city on Irelandís west coast, well known for its traditional Irish music, pubs and beaches. This highly acclaimed course gives an overview of the legal, political and philosophical issues pertaining to international human rights law and its relationship to minority rights and the rights of indigenous peoples.
The theme of this yearís summer school is Minorities and Religion.
Religion has a fraught relationship with minority and human rights standards, being perceived at once as a right and a cause of the denial of rights. This yearís school highlights religion in contemporary minority rights discourse, focussing on issues such as: religious minorities, religion and international institutions, Islam in Europe, caste, indigenous peoples and spiritual beliefs, women and religion, genocide and defamation of religion.
