Property as a Human Right


Location: 1310 Biolchini


CCHR Visiting Scholar Sebastián López Escarcena, Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, will discuss his work on property rights. Although the protection of property in international human rights law is mostly a feature of the three existing regional systems, it has been truly developed in the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights, and only to a lesser extent in that of the Inter-American Court. This talk will address some of these issues, which are part of a fascinating topic in international law: the protection of property.
