The European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC) is organising the 7th Venice School of Human Rights, which was born in 2010 with the goal of studying today’s challenges in the field of human rights. The Venice School allows its participants, coming from all over the world, to list these challenges and examine their reasons and possible solutions they can deploy. The Venice School combines, at the same time, theory and practice and its faculty involves both academics and practitioners. It intends to highlight that the respect for human rights is the responsibility of all, that «Human Rights are our responsibility»
The Opening Lectures of the School will be held by Manfred Nowak, Professor at the University of Vienna and EIUC Secretary General, one of the most renowned human rights experts; by Andrew Anderson, member of the Advisory Board of the Centre for Applied Human Rights at the University of York; by Hauwa Ibrahim, human rights lawyer who won the European Parliament’s Sakharov Prize in 2005, and by Michel Forst, current United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders.
Registration deadline: 13 May 2016
