The 17th Helsinki Summer Seminar on International Law, ‘Globalization in Human Rights’ 16 – 27 August 2004

Each year the Faculty of Law of the University of Helsinki and the Erik Castrén Institute of International Law and Human Rights offer a two-week summer seminar on contemporary international law. The Seventeenth Helsinki Summer Seminar on International Law will be held from Monday the 16th to Friday the 27th of August 2004 under the title ‘Globalization in Human Rights’.

Globalization affects many walks of life, including the ways we think we think about human rights. It has become commonplace to speak about the human rights obligations of financial institutions and private companies, whereas the economic and social turmoil following in the wake of globalization may well be seen to create all sorts of new issues relating to human rights. The 17th Helsinki Summer Seminar on International Law aims to provide a platform for discussion and analysis.
