The Sussex Centre for Human Rights Research at the University of Sussex will be hosting a conference on Friday 27 January 2017: Challenging Human Rights Disenchantment 50 Years on from the ICCPR and ICESCR
The Centre invites proposals for presentations that consider different forms (political, legal, social) of disenchantment with the state of human rights 50 years after the adoption of the International Covenants on Civil and Political Rights and on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. Proposals should address a thematic human rights issue to consider how the issue is being, or might be, challenged. The closing date for proposals is Tuesday 6th September 2016.
On the basis of proposals received in response to this call, the conference steering group will decide on the thematic focus for each of up to six thematic sessions. Each thematic session will involve 10-15 minute presentations by three (or possibly four) panellists. The conference steering group aims to ensure that panellists comprise a mixture of senior and early career researchers, as well as postgraduate researchers, from different disciplines and from both within and outside the University of Sussex.
