Conference: Human Rights: Old Dichotomies Revisited

The Julius Stone Institute of Jurisprudence and the Sydney Centre for International Law, both of University of Sydney Law School, will host a conference on "Human Rights: Old Dichotomies Revisited," November 25-26, 2011. Here's the idea:

The conference will bring together the leading international and Australian scholars in jurisprudence and in international human-rights law to reflect upon the traditional, 'classical' dilemmas and taxonomies in the philosophy of human rights, in the light of recent developments in theories of rights and in the international law of human rights.

Confirmed speakers include: Professor Tom Campbell, Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics (CAPPE), Charles Sturt University (CSU); Professor Leslie Green, Oxford University; Professor David Kinley, University of Sydney; Professor Susan Marks, London School of Economics; Professor Thomas Pogge, Yale University and CAPPE; Professor Jeremy Waldron, Oxford University and New York University; and Professor Neil Walker, University of Edinburgh.
