Conference on Effective Application of ECHR in Areas of Conflict in Europe

On 1 September, the Irish Centre for Human Rights and the School of Law at NUI Galway are hosting a conference on the topic of Lighting the Shade: Effective Application of ECHR in Areas of Conflict in Europe. The conference will take place in person but will be streamed live.

The event will examine the practice of the Council of Europe’s human rights system in European territories where the Council of Europe mechanisms cannot function freely and effectively from both normative and operational perspectives. Speakers will consider how the system might be better leveraged to improve the effectiveness of the European Convention on Human Rights throughout Europe.

The Conference is being organised within in the framework of Ireland's Presidency of the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers, and will feature influential speakers from the Council of Europe, governments, courts, civil society, and academia.
