We have experienced what en ever-increasing rise of human rights, both at the regional and the global level. Now the European Court of Human Rights and the UN human rights treaty body system face challenges from different parts of the world, including from traditional supporters. This seminar will discuss whether the global and regional human rights judiciary should be be further empowered, and whether it should be selective in only taking the most important cases. Furthermore: Should national courts be accorded a greater role in determining the content of the international obligations?
