Fundamental Rights Monitoring

Opportunities and limitations of non-judicial human rights protection

Date: March 1 - 3, 2010

Organizers: Christoph Gusy (Bielefeld), Heiner Bielefeldt (Berlin), Constance Grewe (Straßburg)

The international conference on Fundamental Rights Monitoring focussed on the prerequisites, the mechanisms, and the limitations of an effective monitoring procedure. An international team of experts with a practical background as well as a scientific background discussed human rights monitoring procedures of the International Labour Organisation, the European Union, the Council of Europe, and national institutions. Emphasis was laid on the common structures of these procedures, its effectiveness regarding implementation on national level, the role of civil society and the complementary advantages to human rights protection through court proceedings. The very concentrated and open working atmosphere enabled all participants to discuss fruitfully even the most politically contentious questions in a realistic and scientific manner.
