by | Jan 16, 2020

On 10 March, the UoN Human Rights Law Centre and Doughty Street Chambers will co-host in London a one-day training course entitled “Social Rights in Europe: Advocacy and Litigation”.

Led by international experts in the field, this session will provide practitioners, civil society, academics and others with information about social rights standards, mechanisms and avenues that have historically received relatively little attention in the UK and Europe but which are of growing importance in terms of legal practice, civil society advocacy and academic work.

The sessions will cover the key international and regional mechanisms for social rights advocacy and litigation, including the United Nations, Council of Europe and the European Union. Sessions will also address comparative social rights advocacy work and experience.

Confirmed instructors include:

  • VirgÍnia de Brás Gomes (former Chair of the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights)
  • Professor Jeff Kenner (Professor of EU Law, University of Nottingham)
  • Susie Talbot (activist lawyer working on international economic, social and cultural rights and ecology; formerly Legal Director at ESCR-Net, Lawyer at INTERIGHTS)
  • Professor Aoife Nolan (Professor of International Human Rights Law, University of Nottingham; Academic member, Doughty Street Chambers; Member, Council of Europe European Committee of Social Rights)
  • Jamie Burton (Barrister, Doughty Street Chambers)
