Thursday February 8th, 2018, 18:00, Faculty of Law, UdL 9, Room 213

 

"Decolonial Thinking and the History of Human Rights"

Prof. Dr. José Manuel Barreto Soler

(University Externado of Colombia, University of the Andes)

 

Introduction and Chair: PD Dr. Anna Katharina Mangold, LL.M. (Cambridge), Chair of Public Law and Gender Studies, Faculty of Law, HU Berlin

 

The talk will explore the question: What does it mean to think decolonially - or how to decolonise thinking? Mainstream Eurocentric histories of human rights will be examined in contrast to a history of rights linked to modern imperialism. The lecture will end with some considerations on the practical consequences of such a critical dialogue between Eurocentric and Third-World perspectives on human rights.

 

José Manuel Barreto works on the decolonisation of human rights and international law, and explores their history and theory in the context of modern imperialism. He edited 'Human Rights from a Third World Perspective: Critique, History and International Law' (2013). He studied Philosophy and Law at the National University and the University Externado of Colombia, respectively. He holds an MA in Human Rights at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies, he obtained a PhD in Law from Birkbeck College, both at the University of London. He was a Rechtskulturen Postdoctoral Fellow at the Humboldt University of Berlin and at the Kate Hamburger Kolleg, University of Bonn. He is currently a Lecturer at the University Externado and Catholic University of Colombia.

Master Class with Prof. Catharine MacKinnon (Michigan)

Intersectional Inequalities:

Street Harassment, Prostitution et.al. – Race/Sex/Religion etc.

 

Prof. Dr. Susanne Baer, LL.M. (Michigan)

Richterin des Bundesverfassungsgerichts

Justice of the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany

 

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin: Juristische Fakultät & Zentrum für transdisziplinäre Geschlechterstudien Public Law & Gender Studies

 

Monday, 20 June 2016, 9 – 13 h, Humboldt University of Berlin

 

I am delighted to host a Master Class with Professor MacKinnon in Berlin to discuss challenges in sex equality law arising from cases of sexualized and racialized inequalities and often affected by religious politics as well. Recent German debates around sexual harassment (“Aufschrei”) and street harassment (“Silvester in Köln”) or new regulatory schemes of prostitution (“Prostituiertenschutzgesetz”) are cases in point. The Masterclass will serve to discuss these and topics brought in by participants in a workshop format on the basis of a small selection of common reading.

 

C.A. MacKinnon is an internationally renowned legal scholar, lawyer and advisor on sex equality law and human rights. She was the first to conceptualize sexual harassment as discrimination, in 1979, discussing race and sex as well as class as specifically intersecting inequalities. She drafted civil rights legislation against pornography, litigated many cases of sexual harassment and sexual abuse, and represented Bosnian and Croatian women in Kadic v. Karadzic to win a jury verdict of $745 million in the U.S. in 2000. She has served as an advisor to the Swedish government to ban prostitution, and to the International Criminal Court in 2008–2012 to implement her concept of “gender crimes.”

Her books: Sex Equality (2001/2007), Are Women Human? (2006), Women's Lives, Men's Laws (2005), Only Words (1993), Toward a Feminist Theory of the State (1989), Feminism Unmodified (1987), Sexual Harassment of Working Women (1979).

 

All those interested and willing to contribute actively and to discuss their own projects are invited to apply. To secure a workshop atmosphere, the number of participants is limited to 20. To apply, please send a letter of motivation including a short description of the project you are working on (max. 2 pages) and your CV to sekretariat.baer@rewi.hu-berlin.de. The application deadline is 15 April 2016.
