Summer School “ECHR in Times of Crises”

TU Dresden and Leipzig University are organising the 2nd International Summer School "Human Rights in Theory and Practice" from September 5th to 10th, 2021 in Dresden.  The Summer School will focus on the topic of “The European Convention on Human Rights in Times of Crises” and will explore challenges and opportunities for the European Human Rights System arising out of situations of crisis. 

Themes such as emergency situations, populism, migration, and the role of economic, social and cultural rights in the context of crisis will be explored from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Speakers of the summer school include the Strasbourg Court Judge Anja Seibert-Fohr and other established scholars and practitioners working on the Convention system.

The Summer School is designed for advanced students of law, political science, international relations and similar fields. Prior knowledge about the European Human Rights System may be beneficial but is not required. The language of the Summer School will be English.

The programme is available here and the registration link is here. For more information you can visit the website of the summer school.
