Lecture Series on Human Rights, starting on 19 September

Starting on Tuesday 19 September, a new Lecture Series on Human Rights will explore the significance of human rights in a globalising world. The lectures will demonstrate how human rights are increasingly becoming an instrument by which the negative side-effects of globalisation may be challenged. Register via the website. Tickets: UM students €10, UM employees and students from other schools €25, Others €50.

Human Rights are on the agenda constantly. We keep hoping things change to the better, but atrocities are daily news. Uprisings and big political changes can lead to better human right conditions but also to war and crimes against humanity.

The lectures will be delivered by Prof. Fons Coomans ; Jennifer Sellin, PhD; Prof. Jure Vidmar; Gustavo Arosemena, PhD; Roland Moerland, PhD (All International and European Law, UM).
