Book Presentation and Panel Discussion: „The Revised European Charter“ by Karin Lukas


Tuesday, 7. December 2021 – 17:00 to 19:00


Palais de l’Europe, Strasbourg, France; online

On Tuesday, 7 December 2021, Karin Lukas, Head of Programme Line and Senior Researcher at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Fundamental and Human Rights as well as President of the European Committee of Social Rights, will present her commentary „The Revised European Social Charter“.

This in-depth commentary explores the boundaries of social rights at a European level through analysis of the most comprehensive regional document on social rights, the Revised European Social Charter (RESC). The Commentary considers the treaty as the counterpart of the European Convention on Human Rights and focuses primarily on the rich jurisprudence developed by the Charter’s monitoring body, the European Committee of Social Rights (ECSR).

The event will feature a question-and-answer session with Karin Lukas (Author) and Cathie Burton (Senior Editorial Adivser), followed by a panel discussion with renowned experts on „The Future of Social Rights.“

The event will take place as a hybrid event both in Strasbourg and online.
