Successful and interesting research colloquium of EPFR research programme
On Tuesday December the 11th, the yearly research colloquium of the research programme ‘Effective Protection of Fundamental Rights in a Pluralist World’ took place in the Faculty Room Law of the Academy Building.
This time, assistant professors at the departments of Elaw and Child Law, Mark Leiser and Stephanie Rap presented their current research projects. Mark Leiser talked about the world of online propaganda and machine speech and the questions these development pose as regards the right to freedom of expression under article 10 ECHR. Stephanie Rap spoke about her research into the right to participation of refugee children in the asylum procedure. Mr. Rasmus Wandall, who was this week invited to Leiden by the Child Law department, acted as a referent during the research colloquium. After each presentation, he shared his insights and valuable suggestions on the research with the presenters. This led to sufficient food for thought and a lively discussion with the audience. The discussion even continued during the drinks provided afterwards.
