Annual Conference

Max Planck Law Annual Conference 2020

As rights discourse swells to embrace new generations of rights, could it be said that there is an ‘overproduction of rights’? (cf Upendra Baxi) Do rights replace an authentic human connection? (cf Costas Douzinas) Does the inflation of rights erode the legitimacy of a core of basic rights? (cf Michael Ignatieff) The substantive program of the Max Planck Law annual conference—featuring a panel presentation, a round-table discussion, and a keynote address from world-class scholars in the Max Planck Law network—will take up this confounding debate: rights inflation or rights realization?
