Call for Papers ‘Interaction between human rights 50 years of the Covenants’
INTRAlaw Colloquium 29–30 September 2016
INTRAlaw (International and Transnational Tendencies in Law) is organising an academic workshop on 29–30 September 2016 on the theme of Interaction between human rights: 50 years of the Covenants. The colloquium will bring together scholars working on the interaction within the human rights regime on the international, regional and domestic planes. What is of interest is the way that the two covenants have influenced each other in their legal development; and, significantly, the way that different human rights systems have influenced each other in the definition and implementation of these rights. Particular attention will be given to the activities of the Human Rights Committee and the Committee on Economic Social and Cultural Rights, and their role in interpreting and driving implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR).
Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words, including title of the presentation, author’s name, affiliations and email address. PhD candidates and other early career researchers are particularly encouraged to apply.
Abstracts must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, no later than 15 April 2016.
