CCHR book l(a)unch

This CCHR book la(u)nch will be dedicated to highlight two recent publications by CCHR members. The authors will briefly introduce their work and discuss their projects with the attendants in a plenary session. Members of the CCHR PhD group will prepare a brief response to each of the each of the speakers. We’ll also announce the sixth round of seed money funding and encourage CCHR members to join forces and submit projects related to one of the three CCHR research lines (Mediation, Sovereignty and Contestation). We in particular encourage new initiatives addressing migration and the current refugee crises. There will be ample opportunity to discuss plans and meet possible partners.

Speakers of this book launch session are:
Paulien de MorreeRights and Wrongs under the ECHR. The prohibition of abuse of rights in Article 17 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
Dan Hassler-ForestScience Fiction, Fantasy and Politics: Transmedia World-Building Beyond Capitalism
