Transatlantic Human Rights Law Symposium at Emory

November 1, 10:30 – 2:30 at Gambrell Hall, located at 1301 Clifton Road, Atlanta

Emory Law has the great privilege of hosting a visit by seven current and former members of the European Court of Human Rights (“ECtHR”), an extraordinary and unprecedented opportunity.  The ECtHR judges visiting on Nov. 1st are internationally recognized as some of the most esteemed human rights jurists in Europe and, apart from their service on the ECtHR, have been involved in the international human rights movement for decades. In addition, all come from transitional countries that are facing significant human rights challenges relating to freedom of expression and association and media freedom, including Turkey, Hungary, Ukraine, Romania, Macedonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. The highlight of the visit will be two public panel discussions with the judges on the topics of the international human rights system and transitional justice, the first at 10:30 am and the second at 1:10 pm in Tull Auditorium.
