22 October: Conference "Erosion of the Rule of Law"

Democracy and the rule of law seem to have experienced better times in Europe. The recent developments in many countries point to a dismantling of the rule of law, fundamental rights and democracy.

Aus diesem Anlass veranstaltet das Österreichische Institut für Menschenrechte der Universität Salzburg am 22.10.2019 eine Tagung zum Thema „Erosion der Rechtsstaatlichkeit“. Ausgehend von der Situation in Polen, Ungarn und der Türkei werden drei Experten aufzeigen, wie sich der schleichende Abbau des Rechtsstaats vollzieht, welche Alarmsignale beachtet werden sollten und mit welchen Mitteln die Rechtsstaatlichkeit verteidigt werden kann. 

Nähere Informationen zum Programm finden Sie auf unserer Website: https://www.uni-salzburg.at/index.php?id=212611

Wir würden uns freuen, Sie bei dieser Tagung begrüßen zu dürfen. Die Teilnahme ist kostenlos. Um Anmeldung an menschenrechte(at)sbg.ac.at wird gebeten.
