Public Event: "Human Rights in Crisis - Challenged human rights protection as sign of a transformation of international law?"

As part of the Long Night of the Sciences (Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften) on 9 June 2018, we would like to invite you to a panel discussion about

"Human Rights in Crisis - Challenged human rights protection as sign of a transformation of international law?"

Panellists: Prof. Andrew Hurrell (University of Oxford), Prof. Pierre d'Argent (University of Louvain), Prof. Paolo Palchetti (University of Macerata)

Chair: Dr. Nina Reiners (University of Potsdam)

70 years after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the fate of international human rights seems to be uncertain. Regional courts like the European Court of Human Rights and universal UN Human Rights bodies are increasingly criticized by states and members of civil society. Is this a short-term phenomenon concerning a long-term development towards an ever growing juridification of human rights protection? Or is this a sign of a fundamental change in global structures? Can (and should) international law still play a significant role in furthering the values of human rights?

The discussion will take place on Saturday, 9 June 2018, from 7.30 pm to 9 pm, Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, Unter den Linden 6, room 2014 A (east wing, 1st floor).

Please note that a ticket for the Long Night of the Sciences is necessary to attend. Tickets (adults: 14 Euros, family ticket: 27 Euros) can be purchased at all S-Bahn and BVG ticket machines and points-of- sale. More information can be found here: www.langenachtderwissenschaften.de

We look forward to welcoming you.
