Research Associate Eugenio Gomez-Chico participated in the Critical Approaches to International Law Symposium, organised by Griffith College in Dublin from 1 to 4 August.

In his paper ‘Human Rights Courts of the Global South as creators of International Law’, Mr Gomez-Chico explored how the Inter-American Court of Human Rights and the African Court of Human and Peoples’ Rights approach international law: neither embracing it completely nor fully rejecting it, but rather adapting to international legal principles for their purposes, thus ‘indigenising the universal’.
