GLOTHRO Final Conference ‘Beyond State Obligations in International Human Rights Law’
From 27 – 29 March 2014, the Åbo Akademi Institute for Human Rights will host the GLOTHRO Final Conference ‘Beyond State Obligations in International Human Rights Law – Towards Common Principles on the Obligations of Multiple Global Actors’.
Since its establishment in 2010, the RNP GLOTHRO (Beyond Territoriality: Globalisation and Transnational Human Rights Obligations) has sought to widen the circle of human rights duty-bearers beyond the territorial state, by bringing together the separate fields of study respectively on the human rights obligations of transnational corporations, international organisations and non-territorial states while also involving other disciplines in order to identify common principles determining the human rights obligations of the respective actors within an overall human rights obligations framework.
The conference is the concluding science meeting of the Research Networking Programme and will provide a critical overview of its findings while also indicating any remaining research gaps and future research opportunities. More information can be found on www.glothro.org.
