Seminar presented by the UIA in collaboration with the Paris Bar Human Rights Institute.

This seminar will provide participants with a comprehensive view of the procedures applicable to the three courts: the European Court of Human Rights, the African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights, and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.

The guaranteed rights in each of the regional systems will also be analysed. Specific themes will be the subject of a cross-sectional study in order to compare the approaches reserved by each court regarding current issues. The presentations and analyses of the judges and members of the three jurisdictions will be compared to those of the practicing lawyers and academics.

Mark your diaries now, save the date and make sure to register!
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Paris!

The registration programme will be available soon.
