The conference will be held on Saturday, September 7, 2024 from 9.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. online on the Microsoft Teams platform.

➡️𝐓𝐇𝐄𝐌𝐄 𝐎𝐅 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐂𝐎𝐍𝐅𝐄𝐑𝐄𝐍𝐂𝐄
The goal of the conference is to discuss the theoretical and practical issues related to human rights in the world.
Among other things, we will discuss ways to protect human rights, the practical application of treaty and statutory regulations, as well as states that do not respect these rights.
The legal, social, economic, philosophical and political dimensions of human rights (both in a contemporary and historical perspective) will be discussed as well.
Proposed (sample) thematic areas of your conference presentation:
• Legal regulations protecting Human Rights
• What theoretical approaches best explain human rights?
• How do material and ideological factors influence and shape human rights and respective policies?
• What role might state and sub-state political actors play in supporting human rights internationally?
• How do transnational civil society networks affect states’ human rights policies?
• What role do emerging powers play in driving the discourse on human rights internationally, and what are the similarities and differences between their positions?
• Actions that could help reach full achievement of the human right to science for populations experiencing discrimination or increased vulnerability due to political, economic and social structures, for historically marginalized communities (such as persons with disabilities), and for the other human rights connected to the right to science
• The human rights of students, scholars, academics and researchers in places where conflict, censorship, and/or structural forms of oppression or discrimination make it difficult for them to continue their work
• The human rights implications of climate change on impacted communities and examples of scientific-human rights partnerships to attain climate justice
• The use of scientific evidence and a transitional justice approach that advances diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) as vital to addressing Human Rights
• Human Rights and healthcare
• Human Rights and poverty
• Women’s human rights awareness
Please feel free to choose the topic of your presentation in line with your passion and expertise.
Topics may be of both contemporary and historical relevance, and touch upon all problems regardless of their geographical boundaries.
Panels of the conference will be arranged accordingly.
The thematic areas indicated above are to be treated only as examples.
We strongly encourage you to go beyond them. In addition, the speeches may be interdisciplinary in nature, combining a variety of research fields.
