“Current issues on human rights” has been published

The book “Current issues on human rights” has been published. The papers presented at the Madrid IPS Rc26 human right symposium have been included.

he 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of HumanRights was a good reason to reflect. Nowadays, there is certainambiguity as to whether human rights are a moral, political orlegal concept. What are the specific consequences of enforcing rights in these particular classifications. United Nations’ bodies defend theuniversality, indivisibility and interdependence of human rights, but there is no unanimous agreement with these characteristics. On 23-24 May 2019, a human rights symposium, entitled “Current issues on human rights”, was held at Carlos III University, Getafe Campus. 30 scholars with diverse backgrounds and areas of expertisecame from 13 countries, spread across 4 continents. This book includes some of the interventions in that human rights symposium, which was organised by the Research Committee 26 on human rights of the International Political Science Association -IPSA-, the Department of International and Ecclesiastical Law and Philosophy of Law and the human rights Institute Bartolomé de las Casas of Carlos III University of Madrid.
