Human Rights and Personal Identity-Prof Jill Marshall (Leicester)

by | Dec 9, 2014

Jill Marshall’s Human Rights Law and Personal Identity, published by Routledge in June 2014, explores the role human rights law plays in the formation, and protection, of our personal identities. Drawing from a range of disciplines, Marshall critically examines how, in a so called age of liberation and individuality, human rights law includes and excludes specific types of identity in ways that can potentially restrict our freedom rather than empower it. In the seminar, Jill Marshall will explore some of the themes by reference to particular examples. This seminar is being co-hosted with the Oxford Martin School Human Rights for Future Generations Programme.
