Dr Duggan-Larkin presents a paper on the international action of states

On 27 January 2017 Dr Jess Duggan-Larkin presented a paper on human rights and the international action of states at a University of Sussex conference on Challenging Human Rights Disenchantment.

This international and interdisciplinary conference examined disenchantment with the state of human rights 50 years after the adoption of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. In plenary and panel sessions 23 speakers from across the world considered whether and how any such disillusionment can be challenged.
