Summer School "Human Rights in Theory and Practice"


The Chair for European Law, Public International Law and Public Law is glad to announce that the University of Leipzig will host its first session of the International Summer School on Human Rights Protection under the ECHR in summer 2019. This Summer School combines the academic expertise of an alma mater which is both rich in tradition while at the same time being a modern, forwardthinking institution with its unique location in a vibrant city. It welcomes students and professionals from all over the world to analyse and discuss current developments and recent judicial decisions in order to impart a profound knowledge on the protection of human rights under the application of the European Convention on Human Rights. Particular focus will be put on procedural and practiceoriented questions. The workshops will cover a wide range of topics, from Terrorism, Slavery, Children's Rights, War Crimes, Judicial Independence, the Freedom of Religion, Data Protection Rights, and "Push backs" at EU external borders. Please find all the courses in the schedule on the following pages. Last but not least, you’ll be able to explore one of Germany’s most beloved cities for students. It’s your turn to find out more about the fascination of this city while spending an unforgettable week by learning and living in it. We’re looking forward to welcoming you at Leipzig in summer!
