“Human Rights in a Digitalised World”
The annual Student Human Rights Conference is an opportunity for postgraduate students to present their research to a diverse and global audience alongside eminent scholars, experts and practitioners in this field.
In an increasingly digitalised world, our rights and obligations are evolving at an unprecedented rate. Accordingly, our understanding of the role of human rights law in contemporary society needs to expand and adapt to this changing reality in order to maintain and increase the effectiveness of the current framework. The aim of this conference is to further explore the implications digitalisation bears on national and international law and its possible future developments.
Papers should critically address the questions above, analysing the impacts of digitalisation on individuals, current systems of governance, global inequality, and social movements. Recommendations for future improvement in these areas are also highly welcomed.
The Conference Committee encourages the submission of papers from post-graduate students in any discipline on any of the above themes. Authors of selected papers will be offered the opportunity to discuss their work in panels which will take place as part of the conference, alongside leading practitioners and academics working in the field. Applications are open to university students in any discipline who are enrolled at a recognised university. Papers and presentations should be in English.
