27.04.2017 - 28.04.2017 | Leuven, Belgium
Human rights standards, even if they express humanity’s most basic values, do not suffice and need to be administered, that is, promoted, monitored and enforced in order to be effective. The 2017 AHRI Conference suggests to take a broad and comparative view on the potential, but also the challenges of international and regional organizations in promoting and enforcing human rights.
The AHRI conference gathers member institutions together to coordinate and plan their research through working group seminars and to discuss current issues in defined research areas. The AHRI conference is held annually, and the conference is hosted by a different institution every year. The Annual Assembly meeting is also held during the conference.
In 2017, the conference, entitled ‘The Promotion and Enforcement of Human Rights by International and Regional Organizations’ will be hosted by the Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies, part of the University of Leuven, which is coordinating the FRAME project. FRAME focuses on the contribution of the EU’s internal and external policies to the promotion of human rights worldwide.
