This conference is co-organised by the Oxford Martin School Human Rights for Future Generations programme and the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights (University of Oslo) and is being held in Oxford.
This two-day conference provides a forum for academics, practitioners and government representatives to evaluate the current debate and future shape of the post-2015 agenda from a human rights perspective. It is focused on both theoretical and practical aspects of integrating human rights in the post-2105 agenda, with a particular focus on poverty, environment and peace and security.
The approach at the conference will be multidisciplinary, and the event will include panels with experts on law, philosophy, political science, and economics. The conference aims to facilitate a constructive dialogue on the topic between scholars and policy-makers. The conference will particularly ask:
1) What criteria must a post-2015 agenda meet from a human rights perspective
2) What are the challenges for the integration of human rights, and
3) How do we evaluate the emerging proposals for a post-2015 development agenda?
