Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights postulates Human Dignity as foundation of universal rights that a human person has irrespective of its further properties. The interdisciplinary seminar asks for foundational contexts of Human Dignity in different religious traditions and relates them to national and international legal frameworks. If the legal concept of Human Dignity can be founded both in religious and secular reasoning, it can legitimately claim to be a foundational element of all laws in a State that is neutral with regard to religions and non-religious world views. The seminar will be held in a presence mode. In case of a COVID-19 emergency, we will switch to online teaching.
