Event description

Description

This one-day event will obtain a panoramic perspective, looking to the pressures and challenges associated with a human rights landscape unsettled by Brexit, facing uncertainty regarding the domestic regime for human rights protection, and a Strasbourg system that has been reshaped, yet which remains under intense pressure. What is the 2020 vision, if any, for the protection of human rights?

The programme can be found online on CELI's website (subject to changes).
