Reflecting proposals for major reforms that will directly affect key national, European and international concerns, such as proposals for changes to the Irish legal profession and constitutional amendments, and the UN Treaty Body Reform process, the theme for this year’s event is “Transformation and Reform: Structures and Mechanisms for Rights-Based Protections”. This international one-day event is aimed at promising research scholars from Ireland, the UK and Europe in the areas of law, politics, philosophy and the related social sciences.
