Summer Schools

Summer Schools werden von den DRESDEN-concept Partnern jährlich durchgeführt, um sich über den Campus hinaus mit der Welt zu vernetzen und Innovationen auszutauschen. Die Dresdner Summer Schools werden zu unterschiedlichen Themen und für unterschiedliche Zielgruppen. Sie dienen der beruflichen und privaten Weiterbildung und Vernetzung.

“Human Rights in Theory and Practice", September 5th to 10th, 2021

We invite you to the 2nd International Summer School „Human Rights in Theory and Practice„, which will take place in Dresden from September 5th to 10th, 2021.

The Summerschool will focus on the topic of “The European Convention on Human Rights in Times of Crises” and will explore various challenges and opportunities for the European Human Rights System arising out of situations of crisis. Themes such as emergency situations, populism, migration and the role of economic, social and cultural rights in the context of crisis will be explored from an interdisciplinary perspective. Once again, it will be one of the Summerschool’s special ingredients that speakers will include both academics as well as practitioners, offering the unique opportunity to gain insights into current theoretical discussions as well as the everyday challenges of practicing law.

In 2019, more than 20 speakers and almost 100 participants from about 30 countries turned our first Human Rights Summer School in Leipzig into a space of lively discussion.
This year we are proudly welcoming the following speakers:

Anja Seibert-Fohr, Lize R. Glas, Kyriaki Topidi, Edith Wagner, Zane Ratniece, Leander Beinlich, Mirka Möldner, Björnstjern Baade, Nils Schaks, Monika Polzin, Jessica Gavron, Mateja Steinbrück Platise, David Kosař, Alain Zysset, Caroline Omari Lichuma, Elif Askin, Mattias Wendel, Johannes Eichenhofer, Dana Schmalz;

Everybody is welcome! The Summer School is designed for advanced students of law, political science, international relations and similar fields. Prior knowledge about the European Human Rights System may be beneficial but is not required. The language of the Summer School will be English.
