Chinese Approaches to Public International Law and the Rights of Individuals - Part Three

5 March 2016 - 9:00am to 8 March 2016 - 5:00pm

Graduate Institute, Geneva, Switzerland



Against the backdrop of efforts by China to grow its international legal capabilities, this event, to be held in Geneva in collaboration with the Graduate Institute Geneva and China University of Political Science and Law, will explore international law and counterterrorism and security including digital surveillance, from a human rights perspective.

This is the third in a series of roundtable meetings for a global expert network developed in order to engage with the growing community of Chinese international lawyers writing, thinking and teaching about public international law and the rights of individuals. This network creates a platform for Chinese scholars working on international human rights legal issues to present their thinking and exchange ideas with counterparts from outside China and build a stronger understanding within the wider international legal community of intellectual debates taking place in China about the international human rights system and China's role within it.

The roundtables form part of the China and the International Human Rights System project aimed at developing a richer understanding of China's objectives and practice within the international human rights system.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
