The Integrating Normative and Functional Approaches to the Rule of Law and Human Rights (INFAR) Research program at Erasmus School of Law and the International Institute of Social Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam are hosting a conference on human rights at ISS.
Human rights are a core normative idea for law, but need to be instrumentalized/mobilized by various actors in order to function. The conference brings together an international mix of scholars to address related questions in a socio-legal context, and focuses on four thematic areas: the law and politics of citizenship, constitutional crises and contestation, rethinking corporate social responsibility, and realizing rights in extractive industries. A keynote address will be delivered by Professor Jonathan Klaaren of the University of the Witwatersrand on 1 June.
