a network of constitutionalists from countries throughout the world
International conference on ‘Human Dignity and Human Security in Times of Terrorism
14 December 2017
The Asser Institute, The Hague, The Netherlands
The Asser Institute and the Research Group on “Constitutional Responses to Terrorism” within the International Association of Constitutional Law (IACL) will jointly organise an international conference on ‘Human Dignity and Human Security in Times of Terrorism: International (Human Rights) Law Challenges and Opportunities’. This conference, which is co-funded by the Municipality of The Hague, will critically analyse human dignity and human security challenges in the lead up to terrorism and in the responses to terrorism (both legal frameworks and specific issues). It aims to map how human dignity and human security can be secured, and how law can constitute a source of trust, in times where Europe and the rest of the world continue to be plagued by terrorism.
The organisers of the Conference welcome submissions on papers dealing with topics addressing human dignity and human security in times of terrorism, including but not limited to:
Abstracts (of maximum 1000 words) should be submitted to Dr. Christophe Paulussen, firstname.lastname@example.org, by 23 September 2017. Full papers (of around 10,000 words, including footnotes) are to be submitted by 1 March 2018.
The authors of the selected abstracts will be invited to present their work during the conference, which will take place at the Asser Institute in The Hague on 14 December 2017. The Asser Institute aims to cover – taking into account the available funds – the travel and accommodation costs of the selected speakers.
The final papers will be edited by Christophe Paulussen and Martin Scheinin, published by T.M.C. Asser Press and distributed by Springer in March 2019.
