Over the next week, we will be hosting a symposium on ‘The Place of International Human Rights Law in Times of Crisis’. The posts in this series arise out of a seminar held by the ESIL Interest Group on International Human Rights Law at the 2016 ESIL Annual Conference. In this blog symposium, six authors examine the place of IHRL in four crises: austerity, disaster, the migration ‘crisis’; and weapons transfer in conflict.
Later today, we will have an opening post by Lorna McGregor and Başak Çali. This will be followed by contributions from Jaya Ramji-Nogales and Ralph Wilde. On Tuesday, we will have a post by Christy Shucksmith followed by contributions from Elfin Askin and Charlotte Steinorth later in the week. The final post in the symposium will be by Gaëtan Cliquennois.
We thank all of those who have contributed to this fascinating symposium.
