Please find below the details for this forthcoming workshop, convened by Oxford Brookes Centre for Legal Research and Policy Studies.
The aim is to bring together scholars, judges and policy-makers to discuss the legal framework for the protection of fundamental rights in Europe, reflecting on the relationship between the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) in Luxembourg and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in Strasbourg. The workshop will examine the current state of accession of the European Union to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and consider the legal implications of the accession for the protection of the fundamental rights of EU and non-EU citizens.
This will be explored from a number of different angles, with workshop sessions divided into four main streams: employment rights, citizenship and migration, fundamental rights versus fundamental freedoms and access to justice. Confirmed participants for the workshop include:
Mr Dragoljub Popović - European Court of Human Rights (Judge)
Mr Niilo Jaaskinen - Court of Justice of the European Union (Advocate General)
Ms Kristi Raba - Council of the European Union
Mr Joerg Polakiewicz - Human Rights Law and Policy Division, Council of Europe
Professor Paul Craig - University of Oxford
Professor Stephen Weatherill - University of Oxford
Dr Cathryn Costello - University of Oxford
Dr Karin De Vries - University of Amsterdam
Professor Titia Loenen - Utrecht University
The Conference will draw upon work done for Centre for Diversity Policy Research and Practice and The British Academy for the Humanities and Social Sciences.
