The Discussion Group on Human Rights is intended for research fellows and visiting scholars of the Max Planck Institute, who are concerned with the national, regional and international protection of human rights, as well as institutional aspects of human rights protection within the framework of a research project or dissertation. The discussion group provides an opportunity for mutual exchange on selected topics and current developments in the field of human rights. Both universal and regional human rights protection with a special focus on European and other multi- level systems constitute the group`s main interest. In addition to regularly scheduled meetings, the Discussion Group endeavors to maintain contact with other research institutions and organizes lectures on selected topics concerning international human rights protection.
