The gender gap is, unfortunately, a global concern. It is the basis of multiple violations of human rights. Through this International Conference on Human Rights and Gender Justice, we would like to bring together academicians, students, human rights activists, and all interested people coming from civil society as well, on one platform to strengthen the debate in view to find shared solutions and best practices.
Human rights are the common denominator of human beings, because they rely upon human dignity. They apply regardless of nationality, religion or belief, race, ethnicity, gender. However, due to the raising gender inequalities worldwide, a concerted effort is required from all actors and stakeholders for devising effective policies and enactments in order to prevent future violations, besides addressing the global request for justice.
Contributions can be relied upon the following themes, from a multidisciplinary perspective:
Human Rights and Fight against Terrorism
Human Rights of Migrant Workers (especially during the pandemic of Covid-19)
Human Rights of Older People
