Euroscepticism and human rights in the UK: reflecting on past achievements and future prospects, 20 years after the Human Rights Act
The Human Rights Act, which incorporated the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) into British law from October 2000, is about to celebrate its twentieth anniversary in a very peculiar context. Although the Act has been denounced by the Conservative Party from the moment it came into force, it seems to have been given an unexpected reprieve: indeed, since the summer of 2016, the Conservative project of repealing the act and replacing it with a British Bill of Rights has been eclipsed by the more pressing issue of Brexit.
The workshop Sustainable Europe and its global reach intends to contribute to the academic and policy debate by discussing the aspects of "Sustainable Europe" in its external dimension in an interdisciplinary setting. It aims to include speakers from law, political science and social science. We expressly encourage junior (PhD or PostDoc level) and senior researchers to apply.
The event takes place in the framework of the UACES Collaborative Research Network on EU-China Relations organised by ESSCA School of Management & College of Europe. The event is generously supported by Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, Regional Project Energy Security & Climate Change Asia-Pacific (RECAP), based in Hong Kong SAR China.
The Quaker Council for European Affairs (QCEA) and Newcastle University invite you to the launch of an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded project on gender and inclusivity in peace and security, including an expert panel discussion on the topic. The event is kindly supported by the Irish Embassy to Belgium.
Synergy between the Law of Treaties and the Law of International Responsibility: So Far Apart but Still So Close
The conference deals with the connection between the law of treaties and the law of international responsibility. Following the Rainbow Warrior award and the Gabčíkovo-Nagymaros judgment, it is now commonplace to think of the law of treaties and the law of international responsibility as being in a relationship of 'functional separation'.
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the EUIA organising team and the partner institutions have decided, with much regret, to postpone the EUIA20 conference for one year, concretely to May 26-28, 2021. Travelling and gathering are likely to remain banned or not recommended until the summer break, so we will change the biennial cycle of the conference. Accordingly, the EUIA20 will become EUIA21 and the next two editions will take place in 2023 and 2025.
The Sport&EU 2020 Annual Conference has been CANCELLED. We hope to hold the 2021 conference in Rijeka and Opatija (Croatia), hosted by the Faculty of Law of the University of Rijeka on 17 and 18 June. Please save the date in your diaries.
