Maynooth University Department of Law, in cooperation with the Maynooth Centre for European and Eurasian Studies, is pleased to announce the third international Jean Monnet Summer School “The EU and Human Rights in a Time of Crisis ” which, this year, focuses on “Vulnerability and Human Rights in the European Union” .
The summer school is part of the Jean Monnet Module "EU External Relations in Time of Crisis" (574714-EPP-1-2016-1-IE-EPPJMO-MODULE) co-funded under the Erasmus+ programme.
The 3rd edition of the Summer school, coordinated by Dr. Delia Ferri & Prof. John O’Brennan, will focus EU legislation and policy whose inherent rationale is to counteract structural inequalities. It will discuss different EU measures aimed to combat the discrimination, prejudice and stigmatisation, as well as social disadvantage and material deprivation experienced by certain groups of persons such as people belonging to minorities, Roma and Travellers, migrants, people with disabilities, LGBTI people.
Building on the current academic debate on the concept of vulnerability itself, the summer school will reflect on how the EU can best act to remove structures that sustain or create vulnerability, allowing everybody to enjoy all their human rights to the full.
