Human Dignity and the Constitutional Crisis in Europe: Humanity, Democracy, Social Europe

The conference aims to reflect on the relationship between human dignity and European constitutional democracy, in view of the multiple crises Europe is currently facing. Contributors will be considering whether a renewed commitment to human dignity can perhaps inspire a (partial) solution to some of these crises or whether, in light of its contested nature, it may in fact serve as a rhetorical device to ostensibly legitimise regressive policies and laws.

On the 16th June Manfred Nowak will speak on "TBC".
