Interaction Between Human Rights: 50 Years of the Covenants


This workshop organized by International and Transnational Tendencies in Law at Aarhus University's Department of Law will bring together scholars working on the international, regional, and domestic levels. Especially of interest to the colloquium participants will be the way that the International Bill of Human Rights' two Covenants have influenced each other in their legal development and, significantly, the way that different human rights systems have influenced each other in the definition and implementation of these rights. Particular attention will be given to the activities of the Human Rights Committee and the Committee on Economic Social and Cultural Rights and their role in interpreting and driving implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights  and the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights. 

ASIL is a cosponsor of this event.
