Publish Date: May 29, 2015

Deadline: Jul 17, 2015

Event Dates: from Aug 10, 2015 12:00 to Aug 12, 2015 12:00

The Oxford Symposium on History, Human Rights and Law is a forum for presentation of papers and discourse by scholars and professionals who have a particular interest in the theory and practice of topics relevant to human rights and education law.

You are invited to present a paper on current issues or the history of human rights, education law and criminal justice, serve as a panel member, or you may attend as an observer.

If you wish to present a paper you must submit a brief abstract for review by the Programme Committee.

Papers presented will be subsequently peer reviewed by external readers for possible inclusion in Symposium books or journal articles.

The nature of human rights and liberties whether flowing from national, regional and state constitutions as well as international conventions of the United Nations regarding human rights are appropriate for Symposium discussions.  Human rights laws are of special interest, including, the United Nations conventions on racial discrimination, the rights of the child and the convention for the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women. In the Symposium’s wide realm of issues may be papers concerning due process and Magna Carta and Blackstone’s Commentaries as historical antecedents to education and human rights laws of today. Of major importance, too, is U.S. constitutional law, the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and, the judicial decisions interpreting those instruments.
