Society of Legal Scholars

Conference: 21st Irish European Law Forum

  • Saturday 3rd November 2018
  • Radisson Blu St. Helen’s Hotel, Stillorgan, Co Dublin

CALL FOR PAPERS: Deadline 17 September 2018.

University College Dublin Centre for Human Rights in association with University of Glasgow School of Law present this one-day conference bringing together scholars from a range of disciplinary fields to address the role that human rights have in tackling the global challenges of poverty and material deprivation. It will consider the moral basis and content of human rights against poverty, what obligations these rights entail and how they can be institutionally implemented and enforced.

The conference will also consider the possible limitations of human rights as a means of responding to economic inequality, and will engage with critical debate on whether human rights are, in fact, the best instrument for confronting economic inequality, or whether alternative programmes of social justice are needed.
