Call for papers - 70th anniversary of the ECHR (International conference, 26-27 November 2020, Charles University, Prague)

The European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) officially titled the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms was opened for signature in Rome on 4 November 1950 and will turn 70 this autumn.

The Conference on 70th anniversary of the ECHR is jointly organized by the Human Rights Research Centre (VCLP-UNCE), International Law Department, Faculty of Law, Charles University and the Czech Society of International Law (CSMP-CSIL).

The Conference’s main objective is to address various aspects of the most important features of the ECHR system in order to celebrate its achievements and to discuss challenges.
