The Europe, Regions and Human Rights Summer School promoted by the Law School of the University of Cagliari deals with the study of human rights in the international and the national perspective.
This School aims at contributing to the study of human rights and the legislation on the field through the sharing of regional experiences with all the countries involved in the project.
Four countries will give a contribution to the course with their particular experiences: United Kingdom, Spain, Germany and Italy.
The course is divided in two sections. In the first section teachers from each university will give lectures on the following subjects:
- Introduction to the human rights system: the UN and the EU;
- Business and human rights: the ultimate challenge for human rights;
- Civil and political rights: religion, expression, self determination;
- Cultural rights;
- Human rights and terrorism
- Social and economic rights: work, healthcare, education;
- War crimes and transitional justice;
In the second section the same topics will be addressed from a regional perspective through workshops where students, divided in mixed groups, will work together to produce a final paper.
The School will be held in Cagliari (Italy) from July 13th – July 27th 2013
