The UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration on the Right to Peace in 2016.  In her lecture, Prof. Cecilia Marcela Bailliet (UiO) will analyze the normative language to reveal coexistence of Statist v. Liberal orientation. Further, she will demonstrate how an assessment of the voting record reveals geographic fragmentation. The process indicates possible new trends in human rights evolution in the post-Western order.

Commentator: Henrik Syse (PRIO)

Chair: Kristoffer Lidén (PRIO)

A light lunch will be served.
