This one-day conference marks the 30th anniversary of the Bangalore Principles on the Judicial Application of International Human Rights Law. It will provide an opportunity to hear leading experts, including some of those who participated in the 1988 colloquium, reflect on the legacy of the Bangalore Principles as well as the domestication of international human rights law more broadly.
This event will take a multi-institutional approach to domestication and will consider the judicial application of international human rights norms, as well as the role of parliaments, governments, national human rights institutions and other actors.
At a time of backlash against international standards and institutions, speakers will explore the prospects and challenges for the future. In particular, in the UK context, Brexit and the loss of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights will provide an opportunity to consider the domestic status of other international human rights obligations post-Brexit.
