1. On Athletes, Bodies and Rules: Understanding the Caster Semenya International Human Rights Litigation –  Hyrid Event, Bocconi University, Winkler (HEC Paris). This event will take place on 5 October 2023, 4:30-6:00PM (CEST). The talk will cast light on the judicial saga involving the South African athlete Caster Semenya, whose human rights claims have recently been examined by the European Court of Human Rights. From gender lines to sports law, from arbitration to public policy, the case raises questions about international human rights law as applied to sports and about the status of LGBTI+ people in international law. The event will take place both in person and online. For further details, including venue and Zoom link (available by downloading the programme), see here.
