European Court of Human Rights Judge Johannes Silvis will deliver a talk considering human rights in relation to terrorism, at the University of Liverpool on April 14.
All are welcome to attend the free event, which has been organised by the International Law and Human Rights Research Unit, part of the University’s Liverpool Law School.
Johannes Silvis has been a judge in the European Court of Human Rights since 2012, having previously sat on the bench at the Court of Appeal in The Hague, and at the Dutch Supreme Court.
Johannes Silvis said: “To what extent is the State under a positive obligation to protect citizens against terrorism? Would it be viable to fulfil such an obligation without violating (other) fundamental rights and freedoms? Are the ordinary requirements for a fair trial compatible with national security when suspects of terrorism stand on trial?”
Chairing the subsequent discussion will be Fiona de Londras, inaugural Professor of Global Legal Studies at the University of Birmingham, and author of books Detention in the ‘War on Terror’ (2011) and The Impact, Legitimacy and Effectiveness of EU Counter-Terrorism (2015).
The event takes place from 5-6.30pm on April 14 in the Hearnshaw Lecture Theatre, Eleanor Rathbone Building, University of Liverpool. All are welcome to attend. To register your free place, please visit https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/human-rights-and-security-forum-tickets-21779279411
