Online symposium ‘Futureproofing human rights, developing thicker forms of accountability’: With this symposium on 18 June 2024, we aim to strengthen human rights law by identifying means or mechanisms that ensure a thicker form of accountability that it can face up to current social challenges. This ambition is rooted in the disconnect between the formal legal system and the lived experiences of those who suffer harms that could logically be – but are not (yet) – understood as a human rights violation. The overarching question we seek to answer throughout the symposium is: How can thicker accountability for human rights violations be achieved, so as to ensure better human rights protection in line with the everyday experience of rights holders? Register by 14 June here.
