- A Dual Agenda

Description

Professor Richard Caplan, Oxford, gives a talk for The Evolution of International Norms and Norm Entrepreneurship: The Council of Europe in Comparative Perspective. This one-day workshop will bring together officials and researchers working on the Council of Europe and international norms more generally. Our emphasis on the Council of Europe gives a concrete empirical starting point for consideration of international norms, norm 'entrepreneurship', and human rights. How do norms come onto the international political agenda? How are they turned into political or legal instruments? Who are the norm 'entrepreneurs'? Why do member states risk becoming entangled in an international normative and legal discourse about human rights that their governments may try to avoid 'at home'?

s Norm Entrepreneurship

Description

Dr Gwendolyn Sasse, Oxford, gives the fifth talk for The Evolution of International Norms and Norm Entrepreneurship: The Council of Europe in Comparative Perspective. This one-day workshop will bring together officials and researchers working on the Council of Europe and international norms more generally. Our emphasis on the Council of Europe gives a concrete empirical starting point for consideration of international norms, norm 'entrepreneurship', and human rights. How do norms come onto the international political agenda? How are they turned into political or legal instruments? Who are the norm 'entrepreneurs'? Why do member states risk becoming entangled in an international normative and legal discourse about human rights that their governments may try to avoid 'at home'?
