Human Rights Day 2021

10 December 2021

The universality of human rights is one of the defining ideas of the modern age. Yet, without effective procedural law, the promotion of substantive human rights and freedoms in judicial fora would be next to impossible. With this in mind, several researchers within the Institute are investigating adjudication of human rights in various courts and tribunals. On the anniversary of the signature of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the MPI Luxembourg would like to reflect on the nexus between procedure and substantive human rights by highlighting the work of its researchers in this field.
