The INFAR research program at Erasmus School of Law and the International Institute of Social Studies invites paper submissions for an international conference to be held in The Hague, The Netherlands, 31 May – 1 June 2018. This conference builds on the core idea of the INFAR (Integrating Normative and Functional Approaches to the Rule of Law and Human Rights) project, and applies this to human rights discourse and practices.
Human rights are a core normative idea for law, but need to be used in practice by various actors in order to function. What happens when that is done? More particularly, what side effects does the use of human rights by various actors have for human rights as a normative proposition within law and politics? Paper abstracts are due by 31 March 2018, and should be sent to dr. Nathanael Ali, Email: ali(at)law.eur.nl For further details please see the call for papers.
