We are happy to announce that over the course of this week and next we will be hosting an ESIL Interest Group on Human Rights blog symposium on the interactions between international human rights law (IHRL) and other sub-branches of international law. This follows the previous ESIL-IHRL Online Symposium – Is There General International Human Rights Law?
The discussion will start with an introduction by Başak Çali and Lorna McGregor, co-chairs of the ESIL Interest Group on Human Rights. The symposium will go on to consider the relationship between IHRL and other areas of public international law. Lucas Lixinski will analyse the interaction between IHRL and international cultural heritage law, whilst Francoise Hampson and Daragh Murray will review its relationship with international humanitarian law. Robert Cryer will consider the interaction with international criminal law, Tara Van Ho the relationship with international investment law accounting, and Siobhán McInerney-Lankford the interaction of IHRL and development regimes.
We are grateful to all of the contributors for participating in what we are sure will be a fascinating symposium.
