Around the World of Human Rights


What are the next Human Rights Talks about?

The Human Rights Talks of winter term 2021/2022 will take you on a virtual world tour of human rights in the style of „Around the World in 80 Days“.

Participants in the FAU Human Rights Talks SS 2019 with Judge Tim Eicke (Judge for the United Kingdom at the European Court of Human Rights).

You will get in touch with students enthusiastic about human rights from all continents, who will provide you with insights into human rights topics from their respective countries. This might include current court decisions, but also political human rights problems from around the globe.

Not only will the Human Rights Talks get you an impression of the human rights issues in the different regions of the world – they also represent an opportunity for global networking among students with an interest in human rights!

The “highlight” of the coming Human Rights Talks will be a final excursion to the European city of Human Rights, Strasbourg, at the beginning of the lecture-free period after the term.
