The DISSECT project, led by Prof. Marie-Bénédicte Dembour, which investigates evidence in international human rights adjudication, is delighted to announce the call for papers for the upcoming symposium “Evidentiary regimes of UN Treaty Bodies: Perspectives from research and practice“. The event will be held on 15-16 May 2023 in Ghent, Belgium.

Both legal (e.g. doctrinal, comparative, theoretical, critical) and interdisciplinary perspectives (intersecting with or firmly grounded in e.g. ethnographic, sociological, or political theory approaches) are welcome. Furthermore, there is an interest in “narrow” and “broad” questions, whether they explore the current state of the art, past practice, or future trajectories.

The deadline for abstract submissions is 15 November 2022.

Further details are available in the Call for Papers here. If you have any further questions, feel free to get in touch via
