Human rights are a core normative idea for law, but need to be used in practice by various actors in order to function. What happens when that is done? More particularly, what side effects does the use of human rights by various actors have for human rights as a normative proposition within law and politics? Paper abstracts are due by 31 March 2018, and should be sent to dr. Nathanael Ali, Email: ali(at)call for papers.For further details please see the
