The right to life is often described as the ‘supreme’ or ‘foundational’ right. What are the current challenges and opportunities related to the right to life? What are the cutting-edge developments in jurisprudence, monitoring tools and practices at the national, regional and international levels?
This initiative aims at creating a platform allowing leading academics, experts and practitioners who work on right to life issues on a daily basis in human rights and humanitarian institutions worldwide to exchange around these issues.
It also develops research identifying and discussing some of the cutting-edge development as far as this seminal right is concerned, in the human rights, humanitarian law and the violence reduction contexts.
