The Human Rights Centre at Queen’s University Belfast and the Centre for Public Law at the University of Cambridge will co-host a workshop in the School of Law at Queen’s University Belfast on Friday 27 September 2024.

The Workshop will be held in conjunction with the European Human Rights Law Review and co-organised by members of the Editorial team.

Workshop participants are invited to propose papers on Human Rights and Northern Ireland, which may be broadly construed to encompass the following non-exhaustive list of topics:

  • Post-Brexit human rights protection, including by way of the "dedicated mechanism"
  • The legacy of "the troubles" and the role of human rights litigation
  • The pursuit of a Bill of Rights for Northern Ireland
  • Reproductive rights and freedoms
  • Journalists' rights and freedoms
  • Religious rights and freedoms
  • LGBT+ rights and freedoms

To reiterate, these topics are wholly illustrative. The organisers would welcome abstracts on any topic within the theme of the Workshop broadly construed.

To propose a paper, please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words by 29 February 2024.

Papers will be selected for inclusion in the Workshop from among the abstracts submitted by the deadline. All who submit will be notified as to whether their papers have been accepted for inclusion in the Workshop by no later than 29 March 2024.

Full papers are to be submitted by 13 September 2024, namely two weeks in advance of the Workshop on Friday 27 September 2024. The papers may be between 5,000 and 10,000 words. It is intended that a selection of the best papers from the Workshop will be included in a Special Issue of the European Human Rights Law Review in early 2025.
