On 14 December 2017, the Asser Institute and the Research Group on “Constitutional Responses to Terrorism” within the International Association of Constitutional Law (IACL) will jointly organise an international conference on ‘Human Dignity and Human Security in Times of Terrorism: International (Human Rights) Law Challenges and Opportunities’. This conference, which is co-funded by the Municipality of The Hague, will critically analyse human dignity and human security challenges in the lead up to terrorism and in the responses to terrorism (both legal frameworks and specific issues). It aims to map how human dignity and human security can be secured, and how the law can constitute a source of trust, in times where Europe and the rest of the world continue to be plagued by terrorism.
The Conference will feature the participation of a number of keynote speakers, including Prof. Ernst Hirsch Ballin, Prof. Clive Walker, Prof. Helen Duffy and Prof. Martin Scheinin.
