Another topic addressed by the participants of the IPSA RC26 panel will involve the restoration of an EU based on fundamental rights and respect for the rule of law within the EU’s community of values. It will also be an opportunity to explore the other key challenges for human rights in Europe in the current situation, e.g., human rights violations during the war in Ukraine. The language of the conference is Polish; however, the language of the IPSA RC26 panel will be English. Papers presented by speakers and the discussion during the plenary session in the course of the meeting will be simultaneously translated into English. The conference organisers will provide participants with accommodation and boarding and an opportunity to publish papers approved for print by reviewers.

The COVID-19 pandemia has changed many aspects of human and social life. It proves to be an unprecedented experience. This crisis requires unusual solutions, regulations, and a strong response to limit the disease’s spread and protect societies. However, it could be an excuse to introduce oppressive surveillance and undermine human rights, e.g., political, social, and cultural rights, especially the freedom of expression, the right to privacy. The W.H.O. proclamation of the COVID-19 as pandemic on March 11, 2020, led many countries to declare a state of emergency and grant extraordinary powers to their governments. 

It is expected that during the workshop, the speakers will consider and analyze the impact of COVID-19 on diverse aspects of protection of human rights, in a specific condition of democracy and political rights under lockdown in numerous regions and states, and also the right to health and health-care, equitable access to vaccination, as well as the influence of the health crisis on freedom of expression and media freedom, freedom of movement and privacy.

Due to the pandemic restrictions, the organizers consider all modes of conducting the workshop, i.e., off-line, on-line, and a hybrid version.Each paper-giver will make a 15-minute presentation. Once the panelists have concluded their appearances, the discussant will provide a brief set of oral comments (10-15 minutes). The panel chair will then open the floor to discussion and questions from the audience (45-60 minutes).

This Symposium will be organized in 5 panels, with the following topics: 

a) Democracy and political rights under lockdown

b) The right to health and health-care and equitable access to vaccination during COVID-19 pandemic, 

c) The impact of the health crisis on freedom of expression and media freedom

d) Freedom of movement and privacy in the time of COVID-19 pandemic, e) Key human rights during COVID-19 pandemic. Impact of COVID-19 on some aspects of human rights. Each panel will have a Chair and a Discussant.

Call for papers

The 70thanniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a good reason to reflect. Nowadays, there is certain ambiguity as to whether human rights are a moral, political or legal concept. What are the specific consequences of enforcing rights in these particular classifications. United Nations’ bodies defend the universality, indivisibility and interdependence of human rights, but there is no unanimous agreement with these characteristics. 

Regarding civil rights, technology provides new problems and dimensions to free speech and privacy rights. It is sometimes thought that old concepts must be partly redefined or complete new approaches are required.  

Concerning political rights, the disaffection of the citizens to politics is increasing and there is a demand of more deliberation and participation while a clear politicians’ accountability is required. Political rights must be properly understood within the framework of a democracy of quality.

With regard to social rights, the entitlement and complete enforcement of these types of rights is often controversial. The classical issue is if social rights should be attributed universally or only to people in need. Or what is the kind of interdependence between liberal rights and social rights.

In relation to cultural rights, the role of minorities is diverse in different societies, but it is usually presented as a struggle against assimilation. The recognition of differentiated identities sometimes has to face criticisms from autonomy or gender equality.

 

This Symposium will be organised in 6 panels, which topics are: a) 70thanniversary Universal Declaration; b) Civil rights; c) Political rights; d) Social Rights; e) Cultural rights; d) UN Sustainable Development Goals and UN Global Compact for Migration. Each panel will have a Chair and a Discussant.

 

Abstracts (up to 400 words) and other information queries should be sent to oscar.perez@uc3m.esThe deadline to send abstracts is 25 April 2019. Confirmation of abstract acceptance will be communicated by 30 Abril 2019. The deadline by which to receive complete papers for publication is 15 October 2019.  

This international Symposium will be held at the Carlos III University, Getafe, Madrid, Spain on 23-24 May 2019(University website:https://www.uc3m.es/Home).
