The European System of Human Rights Protection – Summer course

This Summer Course will deal in detail specifically with the European system for the protection of human rights. Although there are numerous summer courses and other special study programs within Europe on the human rights protection, this course concentrates on an integrated treatment of the various European systems and of specifically European issues of human rights protection,
that is, with important matters relevant to over forty European countries with diverse political, economic and social systems.

 The subject matter, therefore, includes human rights protection under the regimes of the Council of Europe (the European Convention on Human Rights and the European Social Charta), the European Union and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (Helsinki Accords), as well as that on the universal level of public international law.

The treatment of these substantive regimes and their specific rights catalogues will be set against the background of a consideration of the philosophical, historical, political, economic and sociological aspects of human rights, and include practical institutional matters such as complaint procedures as well as developments
as in the area of ‘New Rights’.
