22 September 2011: Lunch meeting ECHR

On Thursday, 22 September 2011, 11am-1pm, a lunch meeting (in Dutch) will be organised related to the Faculty’s profile area concerning the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). The discussions during the meeting will focus on the research of three PhD candidates from Leiden University concerning the development of the ECHR and (the improvement of) the practice of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).      

Ingrid Leijten, Tess de Jong en Jasmina Mačkić will introduce their research, after which there will be time for questions and a discussion. Matters concerning the effect of the ECHR and (the boundaries of) the scope of ECHR-rights, as well as the reasoning and legitimization of the ECtHR will be discussed from different perspectives. Intriguing for everyone who has an interest in, or is curious about Strasbourg developments!
