The conference is scheduled for 9-10 June 2022 in Domus Media. It aims to develop critical and reflective thinking on sustainability and its linkages to human rights, relating to its evolution, implementation, justiciability, and the political power dynamics of different actors including in civic spaces.

We are inviting proposals for papers that align with the theme. Topics may relate to or be analyzed from various academic fields, including but not limited to law, institutional, comparative, political and policy analyses. Multidisciplinary is encouraged.
