Educar en Derechos Humanos es un desafío que la Universidad Nacional de Rosario debe instalar para la formación pluricultural de profesionales comprometidos con la defensa, promoción y difusión de los Derechos Humanos.
La educación en Derechos Humanos es efectiva y completa cuando se realiza desde una mirada interdisciplinar del conocimiento, dado que solo así es posible poner en tensión conceptualizaciones naturalizadas desde el discurso hegemónico, y abordar diferentes enfoques sustentados en la pluriculturalidad de las sociedades.
La Maestría en Derechos Humanos aborda el estudio de los Derechos Humanos desde una perspectiva histórica y crítica, con sus despliegues sociales y sus contradictorias complejidades. Por ello, la minada curricular tiene que ver no solo con una formación “académica potente” en la filosofía, la historia y el derecho constitucional sino que incorpora otras miradas a través del desarrollo de problemáticas concretas que ameritan un tratamiento interdisciplinar, superador del reduccionismo cientificista, que acota el estudio de los Derechos Humanos al ámbito estrictamente jurídico.
El magíster en Derechos Humanos es un posgraduado con una sólida formación en investigación y comprensión de los diversos fenómenos vinculados a los Derechos Humanos, adquirida a partir de una perspectiva interdisciplinaria, que le permite evaluar el desarrollo de esos fenómenos y sus implicancias en los diferentes sistemas nacionales e internacionales de Derechos Humanos.
Las clases comenzarán en el mes de agosto.
Call for Papers: Europe’s Shared Burden: Collective Responsibility for Migrants at Sea

The UCD Sutherland School of Law has issued a call for papers for a workshop on “Europe’s Shared Burden: Collective Responsibility for Migrants at Sea,” to be held October 9-10, 2015. Here’s the call:
Europe’s Shared Burden:
Collective Responsibility for Migrants at Sea An Interdisciplinary Workshop
Friday 9th and Saturday 10th October 2015
Call for Papers
UCD Sutherland School of Law welcomes paper proposals for its eighteenth Irish European Law Forum, addressing the topic of “Europe’s Shared Burden: Collective Responsibility for Migrants at Sea”, to be held on 9th and 10th October 2015 at University College Dublin. The workshop aims to foster a strong interdisciplinary focus in order to better understand and critically engage with the concept of collective responsibility in the context of irregular maritime migration. In this respect, we hope to encourage contributions from law, politics, philosophy, as well as other cognate social and human science disciplines. We are also delighted to have keynote addresses from both Peter Sutherland, UN Special Representative for International Migration and Guy S. Goodwin-Gill, Professor of International Refugee Law, University of Oxford (TBC). Further details, including submission requirements and timeline are included below.

Claims of moral, legal and political responsibility feature heavily in discourse on the phenomenon of irregular migration by sea (or “boat migration”). This is understandable given the growing humanitarian catastrophe being witnessed in the Mediterranean region at present. In fact, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) has predicted that in the Mediterranean the death toll from irregular migration could be as high as 30,000 in 2015 alone. The question of European states’ willingness to share in the burden of saving lives at sea has come into sharp focus in the aftermath of the EU’s decision in 2014 to cancel the Mare Nostrum rescue programme, and instead impose the more tightly circumscribed Triton security operation. With the unprecedented number of deaths at sea in recent months there seems to be growing acknowledgement in principle that responsibility for the fate of migrants is, or should be, shared amongst states and institutions at the European level. However, there has been little systematic study of what this shared or collective responsibility actually entails in terms of specific duties and responsibilities. It is clear that existing policy and legal responses are failing, particularly given the rather fragmented and uncertain legal framework (engaging rules of the international law of the sea, refugee and migration law, EU law and international and European human rights law), not to mention inadequate financing, coordination and political will in policy response. Despite recent momentum leading to increased resources, new operational initiatives and reconsideration of refugee resettlement frameworks, there remains a concern that this has been a rather piecemeal, inadequate and uneven response, particularly geared towards border management and security imperatives, rather than consideration of root causes and humanitarian objectives.
In light of these challenges, we welcome contributions addressing any of the following panel themes:
– Panel theme 1 (‘understanding the nature of the problem’): considering the scale and nature of the humanitarian challenge, as well as the tension between humanitarian and security concerns.
– Panel theme 2 (‘what is implied by responsibility in this context’): outlining the nature of the duties and responsibilities entailed by the above challenges from legal, moral-philosophical and political perspectives.
– Panel theme 3 (‘how responsibility should be shared at the operational level’): specifically focussed on understanding burden sharing in the context of maritime search and rescue.
– Panel theme 4 (‘how responsibility should be shared at the strategic level’): considering the emerging notion of ‘solidarity’ at the European and international levels, and addressing issues of financing and allocation of resources, policy formation and leadership, as well as resettlement obligations in the European context.
– Panel theme 5 (‘responsibility and redress for harms’): which aims at considering the nature and adequacy of international and European redress mechanisms in response to potential human rights violations, deaths and injury at sea, including consideration of moral and legal implications of “push back” operations.
Although focussed upon the challenges posed at the European level, the organisers welcome contributions developing comparative perspectives (especially given parallel concerns in the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea at present). We also strongly encourage interdisciplinary collaboration where appropriate.
Abstracts, not exceeding 300 words, should be sent by Friday 26thJune 2015 to Dr Richard Collins (firstname.lastname@example.org), including your full name, affiliation, and contact details. Please also clearly indicate which panel theme(s) your paper will address.
Please also note:
• Selected participants will be asked to provide a draft paper (8,000-10,000 words) in advance of the workshop – further details below.
• Following the workshop a selection of papers will be considered for publication as part of an edited collection.
• Accepted participants will be expected to meet their own travel and accommodation costs. We may be in a position to offer some financial assistance to PhD students and Post-Docs, if unable to draw on institutional funds. Please indicate in your email if you believe you may require financial assistance in this respect.
• Deadline for submissions is Friday 26 June 2015
• Successful applicants will be informed by Monday 13 July 2015
• Draft programme published by Monday 3 August 2015.
• Submission of draft conference papers by Friday 18 September 2015
Call for Papers: The Future of Transatlantic Economic Governance in the Age of the BRICS (Reminder)
Source: International Law Reporter
The International Economic Law Interest Groups of the American and European Societies of International Law, together with the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law, have issued a call for papers for a joint works-in-progress workshop, to take place December 11-12, 2015, in Heidelberg. The workshop theme is: “The Future of Transatlantic Economic Governance in the Age of the BRICS.” Here’s the call:
CALL FOR PAPERS: DEADLINE 30 JUNE 2015
The International Economic Law Interest Groups
American and European Societies of International Law
together with the
Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law
are pleased to announce a joint
2015 Scholarship Workshop on:
The Future of Transatlantic Economic Governance
in the Age of the BRICS
11-12 December 2015
to be held at the Max Planck Institute
Workshop theme: As the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership negotiations have revealed, in some ways the developed economies of North America and Europe have never been more interested in creating a cooperative system of economic governance. In other ways, however, the relationship between these countries has never faced more challenges, as new economies disinclined to accept the trade rules and regulatory cooperation efforts of the developed world have ascended to new economic rights and have asserted new legal authority. Moreover, some of the traditional strengths of incumbency, such as a powerful currency and traditionally strong representation in international organizations, have come to look more like liabilities. This emerging economic order has presented challenges for Transatlantic cooperation efforts in trade law, investment law, financial regulation, monetary policy, and law and development – to say nothing of the longstanding conundrums raised by differences in competition law, complexities inherent in the supervision of multinational corporations and financial institutions, and problems posed by the need for sustained regulatory cooperation.
The International Economic Law Interest Groups of the American Society of International Law and the European Society of International Law, in cooperation with the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law, will hold a joint workshop in which progress in research on these issues may be made. The working language of the workshop will be English.
Call for previously unpublished papers: We encourage IEL scholars, practitioners, and advanced doctoral students to submit proposals for paper presentations on any topic related to the workshop’s theme, broadly conceived. Proposals should be no more than one single-spaced page in length and should include the paper’s working title and an abstract describing its main thesis, methods, and contribution. All papers should be works-in-progress, that is unpublished at the time of the workshop. Authors should also submit a separate, one-page bio or short curriculum vitae (CV) (max two pages) along with the abstract. Proposals should be emailed to: ASIL.ESIL.IntEcLIG.Workshop@gmail.com and must be received no later than June 30, 2015.
Selection process: Submissions will be reviewed by a joint selection committee convened by the organizers. Selection decisions will take into account the proposals’ originality, diversity, and relevance to the workshop’s theme and will aim to achieve a well-rounded representation of European, North American, and non-transatlantic perspectives. We plan to inform the selected participants by August 15, 2015, with papers due for circulation to all workshop participants no later than November 15, 2015.
Workshop Format: In order to ensure a high level of discussion, the workshop will take place over 1.5 days in a roundtable format. Presenters will be thematically grouped into four to five panels of three papers each, with a senior commentator moderating the discussion for each panel. Due to space limitations, early submission of proposals is highly encouraged.
Publication Possibility: Depending upon the topics of the final submissions, a number of workshop participants may be invited to submit their papers for publication within a special issue of theJournal of World Investment and Trade. Any such invitations will be extended in accordance with that Journal’s usual peer review and editorial policy.
Workshop Costs: We are in the process of applying for funding to help offset the costs of the workshop. Subject to final availability of funds, we hope to be able to cover reasonable economy class travel and accommodation costs to assist most participants with the journey to Heidelberg, which is particularly lovely during the holiday season. Final confirmation of funding availability will be communicated along with selection decisions.
Any further questions may be directed to the organizers at: ASIL.ESIL.IntEcLIG.Workshop@gmail.com.
We look forward to receiving your proposals!

Call for Papers: The Present and Future Role of Investment Treaty Arbitration in Adjudicating Environmental Disputes

PluriCourts has issued a call for papers for a symposium on “The Present and Future Role of Investment Treaty Arbitration in Adjudicating Environmental Disputes,” to take place November 5-6, 2015, in Oslo. Here is the call:
The Present and Future Role of Investment Treaty
Arbitration in Adjudicating Environmental Disputes
5 and 6 November 2015, Oslo
Call for Papers
PluriCourts, a Centre of Excellence at the University of Oslo, is organizing an international symposium entitled ‘The Present and Future Role of Investment Treaty Arbitration in Adjudicating Environmental Disputes’. The symposium will be hosted at the faculty of law of the University of Oslo on 5 and 6 November 2015.
This symposium will focus on investment treaty arbitration from a forward-looking perspective on how future practice might be shaped or reformed in a way that can both promote environmental sustainability and protect responsible and legitimate foreign investments. In light of this focus, the symposium will engage participants in discussions on specific reform proposals and practical policy and treaty practice responses to issues dealing with how international investment law and environmental law might become more mutually supportive and complimentary especially in the context of the adjudication of foreign investment disputes concerning environmental issues.
The symposium aims at fostering discussion on the ways in which international investment law and environmental law can be mutually supportive and complimentary. For example, this mutually supportive approach could be investigated from a number of angles: 1) how, when, and to what extent can future IIA practice – as informed by existing treaty practice and jurisprudence – integrate environmental sustainability and protection components (ie GATT-like general exceptions, sustainable development obligations) while still protecting legitimate foreign investments; 2) how, when, and to what extent could environmental agreements (especially those relating to the funding of climate change mitigation and adaptation) incorporate ‘green’ investment protections that are subject to dispute settlement provisions; and 3) how might investment treaty tribunals help promote a state’s compliance with its own environmental obligations where such compliance is the basis of the foreign investor’s claim (ie the pending Allard v Barbados claim).
A partial list of expert scholars, practitioners and arbitrators confirmed for the symposium include:
Freya Baetens, University of Leiden
Andrea Bjorklund, McGill University
Rudolf Dolzer, University of Bonn
Ben Juratowitch, Freshfields
Robert Kirkness, Freshfields
Kate Miles, University of Cambridge
Andrew Newcombe, University of Victoria
Noah Rubins, Freshfields
Stephan Schill, University of Amsterdam
M. Sornarajah, University of Singapore
Jeffrey Sullivan, Allen and Overy
Jorge Vinuales, University of Cambridge
We invite papers to be presented and discussed on the theme of this symposium. We remind applicants to focus specifically on issues of adjudication related to treaty-based arbitrations involving environmental aspects. Please send your abstract (word limit: 500 words) with a CV to: email@example.com. The deadline for submissions is 15 July 2015. Notification of acceptance will be given in the beginning of September 2015. We aim at publishing 5 to 6 selected papers in a special issue of theJournal of World Investment and Trade.
