PROJECT OVERVIEW 

With a view to informing the work of the UN Human Rights Committee in drafting General Comment 37 on the right of peaceful assembly (Article 21 ICCPR ), the European Centre for Non-Profit Law (ECNL) is working together with the Centre of Governance & Human Rights (CGHR) at the University of Cambridge and the University of East Anglia Law School to convene an expert workshop focusing on the potential for exercising this right online. This workshop will be held at the CGHR on 2-3 December 2019.

ECNL , UEA Law School and CGHR are recruiting a small team of researchers to undertake a broad review of relevant materials and produce a substantive online ‘Research Pack’. This will be made available to workshop participants and members of the UN Human Rights Committee. The research team will also produce a short briefing note to help frame the final Workshop agenda.
