Rights and Citizenship: Reconsidering Politics and Law in light of Contemporary Challenges 13.-14. September 2019 FU Berlin, Germany
A basic claim implicit in the idea of Human Rights is that human beings are entitled to certain inalienable rights independent of their nationality, ethnicity, religion, and any other affiliations. However, the challenges faced by immigrants, refugees, stateless people, and citizens of failed states in our times suggest that the link between citizenship and rights should not be ignored. This workshop will investigate the relation between citizenship and rights with the aim of discovering new ways of thinking in approaching humanitarian issues.
