Tallinn University hosted the New Human Rights of the 21st Century conference on September 20-22 to explore the origins of such rights, the functions and the rhetoric of these rights and the role such “new” rights can play in the field of human rights law. The conference was part of the HURMUR: Human rights – mutually raising excellence project, funded by the European Commission. 

The three-day conference brought together leading researchers in the fields of rights related to identity and personality; rights to well-being; rights related to the exercise of public authority; rights related to new technologies. Judit Sandor, professor in the Departments of Legal and Gender Studies and Political Science at CEU, participated in the conference as commentator on the genetic rights panel.
