The last few years have seen numerous cases in various jurisdictions seeking to hold foreign states and their agents accountable for human rights violations. The ruling of the European Court of Human Rights in Al-Adsani v UK cannot be said to have settled the controversy, and the issue has returned to the Court in Jones v UK, as well as being put before the International Court of Justice in by Germany against Italy for failing to respect its jurisdictional immunities as a sovereign State.
The conference will provide an overview of how different national courts in Europe have approached questions of the immunities of States and their agents for human rights violations and the conflicts that have arisen, culminating in Germany's recent application to the ICJ. Panels will examine key theoretical and conceptual issues, current developments and proposals for reform of the law.
