‘Human rights and EU crisis management operations: a duty to respect and to protect?’
Workshop organised by the T.M.C. Asser Instituut and the Centre for the Law of EU External Relations (CLEER) in cooperation with the Netherlands Defense Academy on 25 May 2012 at the T.M.C. Asser Instituut in The Hague.
The conference will bring together a group of academic and professional experts to explore two timely cross-cutting themes relating to EU crisis management operations: (1) the duty to ensure respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms in EU crisis management missions; and (2) the contribution that such missions make to the Union’s policy of promoting human rights at the international level. Highly-recognized legal scholars as well as practitioners from Member States’ administrations, the Council, European Parliament and EU CSDP missions will discuss the challenges of the human rights dimension in the EU’s conduct of crisis management operations.
Conference directors: Dr. Ramses Wessel (University of Twente/CLEER), Dr. Aurel Sari (University of Exeter) and Dr. Tamara Takacs (CLEER/ T.M.C. Asser Instituut)
