The UN Security Council’s Evolving Engagements with Human Rights – Public Lecture by Prof. Andreopoulos
14 November 2017 @ 18:00 – 20:00
This talk will examine the interplay between the peace/security and human rights discourses at the UN Security Council (UNSC) in light of key post-cold war developments that have led to the UNSC’s evolving and growing relationship with human rights, albeit one that is primarily characterized by episodic and reactive engagements. It will critically examine the UNSC’s record in some of the main human rights issue areas and explore the effects of these engagements on the Council’s legitimacy.
