Legal Theory and Human Rights (Workshop, 18 December 2010, Venice - Lido)
On 18 December 2010, EIUC hosted the workshop entitled ‘Legal Theory and Human Rights’ at the Monastery of San Nicolò in Venice-Lido(Italy).
The aim of the workshop was to facilitate an exchange of ideas between young legal scholars preoccupied with the fields of legal philosophy and human rights and to explore diverse theoretical questions connected to the area. This unique and interdisciplinary initiative aimed to bring together practical matters of fundamental rights law with the philosophical foundations and to direct attention to the often neglected theoretical aspects of human rights law.
The presentation of each participant was followed by common discussion which contributed to the development of the research papers and their possible publication afterwards.
