The ‘Greek Case’ in the Council of Europe: A Game Changer for International Law and Human Rights?

Athens, 12–14 December 2019 (to be confirmed)

2019 will mark the 50th anniversary of Greece’s withdrawal from the Council of Europe, following pressure by European countries and institutions for the violation of human rights by the military junta in Greece (1967–74). The Athens-based Netherlands Institute and the Danish Institute, in collaboration with the Swedish Institute and the Norwegian Institute, are organizing an international conference on the history and legacy of this emblematic case.

Call for Papers

The conference languages are English (preferred) and Greek. Simultaneous translation will be provided if needed. Abstracts for 20-minute papers should be submitted in English (300 words maximum), accompanied by a 100-word biographical note, contact information, and affiliation; independent scholars are welcome to submit.

Proposals should be submitted to by Monday 14 January 2019.
