Applications for the Venice Academy of Human Rights Summer School, which will be held from the 2nd-7th July 2018 are open.
This year the focus will be on “Migration, Mobility and Diversity: New Horizons for Human Rights”. Participants will be able to benefit from an intense week of lectures, seminars, discussion sessions and panel presentations.
Professor François Crépeau, former U.N. Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants from 2011 to 2017, current Director of the Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism at McGill University, Canada and recently appointed 2017-2018 International Francqui Professor at Université catholique de Louvain will act as the Academic and Scientific Coordinator of the Academy.
This 2018 Venice Summer Academy is dedicated to developing sophisticated analysis on the theme “Migration, Mobility and Diversity", weaving numerous threads: economic gains and costs for countries and individuals; cultural and existential anxieties; labour rights of all workers, including migrants; human rights of all, including migrants; freedom of movement regional zones; limitations of our present conception of representative democracy.
The Summer Academy is based on Venice Lido, at the Monastery of San Nicolò. The deadline for registration is 23rd May 2018, however participants who enrol before the 11th April 2018 will receive a discount on fees.
The Academy is an international and interdisciplinary programme of excellence for human rights education, research, and debate that provides an enriching forum for emerging ideas, practices, and policy options in the field of human rights. It hosts distinguished experts to promote critical and useful research and innovation through the exchange of current knowledge.
