OxHRH Webinar-Counter-Terrorism and Security in Europe after the Paris Attacks-Prof Fiona de Londras (Birmingham)
22 Jan 2016, 2pm (GMT) | Oxford University

The OxHRH Webinar is archived and now available to view here!

The OxHRH with the support of the Bertha Foundation, is pleased to continue it’s innovative webinar series with an exciting webinar from Professor Fiona de Londras (University of Birmingham) on the security responses to the Paris Attacks in November 2015.

The attacks in Paris in November 2015 have resulted in a wave of counter-terrorism law and policy reform proposals at EU level. In this webinar, Professor Fiona de Londras will outline these reforms and critically engage with them from a human rights perspective.

The webinar will cover the following topics:

  • What was the state of EU counter-terrorism law and policy before the Paris Attacks?
  • What are the particular perceived security vulnerabilities in Europe and how do these justify the involvement of the EU?
  • What proposals have been advanced at EU level and what are their implications for human rights?
  • How do these EU-level proposals interact with international and national proposals and measures to counter terrorism?

The webinar is unique in that it will allow academics, students, policy-makers from all over the world to participate in the OxHRH seminars. Participants will be able to listen to Professor Fiona de Londras and interact with the power-point slides. This will be an interactive webinar where participants will be asked throughout the seminar to provide their opinion on key aspects of current developments in security which will then be included in the seminar. Following the seminar, there will be a questions and answer session.

Participants can submit their questions via the Oxford Human Rights Hub twitter account @OxHRH using the hashtag #security or they can email questions to oxfordhumanrightshub@law.ox.ac.uk.
