The objective of the conference is to revitalize reflection on the way that human rights have been “typologised”-a central question, but one that scholarly research has largely overlooked, if not to say ignored. The conference will have two parts. The first will be dedicated to an analysis of questions posed by the classification of human rights. We will deal with the question of the necessity of classification, but also with other questions central to the debate such as those of the indivisibility and the interdependence of human rights, and of human rights hierarchies. In the second part, we will explore the typologies of the different human rights judicial systems (the universal and regional systems of protection).
