Annual Research Day
20 & 21 June 2019, Maastricht University

On Thursday 20 and Friday 21 June, the Faculty of Law of the Maastricht University will host the Annual Research day of the NNHRR. The theme of the 2019 Toogdag is

"The (In)Effectiveness of Human Rights: Are Human Rights a Myth or a Lived Reality?"

The 2019 Toogdag of the Netherlands Network for Human Rights Research seeks to explore, from an interdisciplinary perspective, whether human rights are, in fact, a myth or a lived reality? The conference is structured around three sub-themes: i) The effectiveness of international law: institutions and processes; ii) The effectiveness of human rights monitoring and implementation at the domestic level; and iii) Human rights at the individual level: individual experiences and key actors.

Call for papers The organisers are looking for papers that fall clearly within the following themes:

  • The effectiveness of international law: institutions and processes;
  • The effectiveness of human rights monitoring and implementation at the domestic level;
  • Human rights at the individual level: individual experiences and key actors.

The deadline for submitting abstracts (not papers) for the panel discussions has been extended to March 25. The deadline for submitting draft papers is 7 June 2019.
