Prof. Rick Lawson on ‘The European Court of Human Rights reading between the lines’

The Institutions for Conflict Resolution (COI) research group invites Professor Rick Lawson to launch its international seminar series.

Institutions for Conflict Resolution / Conflictoplossende Instituties (COI) is a research collaboration between Utrecht University, Leiden University, and Radboud University Nijmegen. As part of its activities, the COI research group organises seminars throughout the year for researchers interested in current and innovative topics relating to institutions for conflict resolution.

The seminars feature international speakers who present their work, followed by Q&A and discussion. Themes include the evolving role of judges in preventing and resolving conflicts, the role of alternative avenues and non-public actors, and how societal challenges such as climate change or digitalisation affect institutions for conflict resolution. Seminars are hosted on a rotating basis at each of the three universities, and are delivered in a hybrid format: online via Microsoft Teams and in-person, on campus at the host institution.

The series will kick off with the lecture by Prof Rick Lawson at Leiden University. Prof. Lawson will be speaking about developments in the European Court of Human Rights.
