Global Law - Human Rights

Units : Perelman Center for legal philosophy | ULB055

Description :

The purpose of this research program is to study the globalization process of human rights. More precisely, the research aims to
evaluate the stakes and identify the conditions, as well as to consider the very hypothesis, of the emergence of global human
rights law. There are three sections to this research program, and they correspond to the three main challenges in human rights law
with regard to globalization: opposability, justiciability, and universality. In each section, the research will start by identifying
the limits of international human rights law in the context of globalization, and will focus next on the solutions that a global
human rights law could offer to fill in the gaps. However, the research program does not plan to speculate de lege ferenda on the
creation of a global human rights law. Instead, it aims to explore concrete and practical solutions and mechanisms that can be
found in positive law and that could confirm the emergence of a global human rights law.
