Last month, Cardiff's Professor Urfan Khaliq was invited to speak at the Council of Europe High Level Panel in Turin, which serves to protect and strengthen economic and social rights in Europe.
The panel convenes only once a decade and aims to address major reforms or attacks on human rights in the Council of Europe system. This role is especially pertinent in light of recent austerity measures and economic crises that have resulted in cuts to public spending and attacks on economic and social rights.
As a plenary speaker on the future of the Collective Complaints Mechanism, Professor Khaliq presented his views on current mechanisms which exist to enforce economic and social rights and how they work, as well as why more States need to sign up to them.
Other attendees at the conference were European Commissioners, Judges from the European Court of Human Rights, Judges and Advocate Generals of the European Court of Justice, Ministers from a host of Council of Europe States, and government representatives from all 48 Members of the Council of Europe.
Commenting on the conference, Professor Urfan Khaliq said:
"The Council of Europe's High Level Panel in Turin on economic and social rights, sought to reassert the importance of the protection of such rights at a time of extreme financial challenges in Europe and at a time when all human rights are under political attack. The panel sought to reconfigure the balance between State obligations towards those in need and their fiscal policies at a time of extreme pressure and to create a model which will withstand the test of time for a significant number of years to come and ensure the effective protection of such rights across Europe."
Professor Urfan Khaliq, who is dedicated to improving the protection of economic and social rights across Europe, will remain part of the group going forward.
