The Kiobel Judgment of the U.S. Supreme Court and the Future of Human Rights


In the aftermath of the Kiobel judgement of the U.S. Supreme Court a number of questions related to the access to justice in defence of human rights remain unanswered. The Max Planck Institute Luxembourg has  decided to address the topic in a one-day seminar gathering academic, experts  and professionals from Europe (Professors B. Hess, H. Muir Watt, C. Kessedjian, N. Jägers, P. Kinsch, Dr. C. Feinaeugle and A. Sessler) as well as from the U.S. (Professors D. Stewart and D.T. Childress III). We also expect the attendance of representatives of other stakeholders, such as NGOs.

The event will take place in Luxembourg on July, 4th; click here to see the program.

Venue: Max Planck Institute (4 Alphonse Weicker, L 2721). Language: English.
