The School of Law at the University of Portsmouth, the European University Institute (EUI) and the School of Law and Social Justice, University of Liverpool are co-organising a conference on the European consensus (EuC) method of interpretation of the European Court of Human Rights. The conference, entitled "Building Consensus on European Consensus", will take place at the European University Institute in Florence on 1 and 2 June 2016. The keynote speech will be delivered by professor Conor Gearty of the London school of Economics. In the organisers' words, "the purpose of this 2-day conference is to bring together academics and members of the European judiciary in order to study the function of EuC, identify its impact on European human rights law and beyond, and assess its merits and shortcomings as a catalyst for the development of 'new' rights."
