Martin Scheinin to open the Venice School of Human Rights 2014
The 2014 edition of the Venice School of Human Rights will be opened by Professor Martin Scheinin, former UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism, and current Professor of International Law and Human Rights at the European University Institute of Florence.
The EIUC Venice School of Human Rights allows its participants to be updated on the state of the art debate on human rights issues and stimulates a reflection on the current challenges faced by human rights actors worldwide.
After an introduction on general challenges, 3 topics will be examined in depth:
Business and Human Rights
The Internationalisation of Migration Law and the Role of the EU
Freedom of Expression and Assembly Online
The EIUC Venice School combines at the same time theory and practice and its faculty involves internationally recognised academics and practitioners.
The Venice School is addressed to graduate students from all academic backgrounds, students from the different regional masters in human rights and democratisation, to E.MA alumni as well as to human rights practitioners wishing to deepen and improve their knowledge in human rights issues. The School places great emphasis on interdisciplinarity and gender equality.
