Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights at the European Humanities University invite everyone interested to the 5 day Summer University 2022 devoted to the topic: “Human Rights for Everyone: Humanity-Technology-Law”, that will be held on August 1–5.
The rapid development of technology – which has become an integral part of our lives – is changing and shaping a new system of human rights and international law. The issues of ensuring and protecting human rights and proper legal regulation arise in a variety of areas: from the spheres of politics, administration and justice, the spheres of peace and global security to the spheres of private and civic engagement, business activities and financial markets.
The Summer University’22 will focus on law and humanity as core issues for all as the main regulatory mechanisms of the new technological reality.
A big advantage of SU’22 is its focus on the creation and development of group projects of participants, accompanied by mentoring from experts in 5 thematic areas and a special prize fund [see details below].
