The Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, better known as the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), was opened for signature in Rome on 4 November 1950. The Convention will thus be 70 next autumn. The Human Rights Centre wishes to take the opportunity of this anniversary to take stock of the history of the Convention system and to think about its future during an international conference.
The conference will take place in Ghent (Belgium), from 18 until 20 November 2020. More information can be found in the call for papers.ECHR70-Call-for-papers_update-13-March-2020
