Georg Lohmann is the founding figure of our course and its spiritus rector since almost twenty years. As the title he gave to the course already indicates, Lohmann rejects any reductionist approach of human rights not only concerning their content but also regarding the different disciplinary perspectives we need to study them appropriately. He is convinced that the different types or generations of human rights – civil, political, social and cultural rights – also reflect their complex nature as morally justified, politically interpreted and legally enforced claims of individuals.


This year we directly address Lohmann’s central research topic and thus want to honor him as a distinguished human rights scholar. We invite human rights scholars from various backgrounds to contribute to the conference by addressing the complex relations between morality, law, and politics.


For further information see the CfP attached. The deadline for contributions is April 15, 2020.
