The Human and Fundamental Rights Working Group provides a forum for researchers to discuss issues related to the protection of human rights at domestic, regional and international levels. As of April 2019, this Working Group combines the former Fundamental Rights Working Group (established in May 2011) and the Human Rights Working Group-Law in Action Project (newly relaunched in April 2018).
The Working Group organises ad hoc events with invited external and internal speakers, and welcomes EUI researchers’ presentations.
It also provides an informal forum for discussing ideas, papers and case law through monthly meetings of its members. Our ambition is to keep track of the latest international and European legal developments and to contribute to research on human rights protection carried out in various forms at the EUI’s LAW Department and beyond.
The group is grateful for the support of Prof. Sarah Nouwen
