6th COIMBRA International CONFERENCE ON Human Rights

THE CONGRESS:

The “6th Coimbra International Conference on Human Rights: a transdisciplinary approach”, once again invites the entire academic community to a moment of reflection and debates about different and relevant socio-legal issues found in the scope of Human Rights. The purpose of this international academic event is to foster, according to its thematic proposition, the construction of ideas and the development of scientific theories from a multidisciplinary and critical perspective of the social and legal sciences.

Our invitation is for all students and professionals in legal and social sciences interested in these themes to participate in this 6th Coimbra International Conference on Human Rights, on October 12, 13 and 14, 2021. It will be up to the participants of this event academic justify the new times of legal and social sciences by creating, defining, sustaining and believing in societies that are moving towards overcoming practices that violate human rights, with the aim of producing a truly just and solidary society.

PREVIOUS EDITIONS:

The Coimbra International Conference on Human Rights: a transdisciplinary approach (CIDHCoimbra) will be held in 2021 in its 6th edition and has already been considered one of the most important scientific events on Human Rights held in Portugal. Throughout its trajectory, CIDHCoimbra has organized several Thematic Symposia in which researchers from different countries participated, especially from Portuguese-speaking countries. From this activity, over the last few years, numerous scientific publications have been produced, among which the Annals of Abstracts and the Annals of Complete Articles of the Congress stand out. CIDHCoimbra is also attended by prominent international personalities who, as speakers and guests, have been present since the first edition of the Congress. We were honored to host JJ Gomes Canotilho, Vital Moreira, Jónatas Machado, Flávia Piovesan, Antônio Carlos Wolkmer, Ingo W. Sarlet, Cesar Nunes, David Rúbio, among others.

You can also take part in this Congress and get to know the huge academic network of researchers and students of Human Rights that make up CIDHCoimbra. Every year in October, we have an appointment in Coimbra!
