Andrew Drzemczewski, Inaugural Professorial Lecture, Visiting Professor at Middlesex University.

‘Human Rights in Europe: an Insider’s Views.’

Compliance with, and the need to consolidate respect for, core human rights standards in Europe has been entrusted primarily to the Council of Europe. Andrew Drzemczewski, who has spent over 30 year in Strasbourg, will provide an insider’s critical appraisal of how the organisation, and in particular the Committee of Ministers and the Parliamentary Assembly, have taken up this challenge.

17:30 Tea on the 2nd Floor Mezzanine.

18:00 Lecture in C219-20.

19:00 Light buffet on the 2nd Floor Mezzanine.

Since 1986, Andrew has been a Legal Correspondent for ‘The Times’ newspaper and has published more than 380 Human Rights Law Reports. He has taught and published widely on international and comparative law issues, with particular reference to human rights in Europe and, prior to joining the Council of Europe, provided legal advice and assistance in international human rights litigation to several NGOs. Andrew is also Secretary General of the Association of Friends of the International Institute of Human Rights – René Cassin Foundation, Strasbourg; member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the European Yearbook on Human Rights, and a member of the Advisory Board of the European Human Rights Association.
