Since 1946, the Leiden University Fund (LUF) has organised the Cleveringa Meetings, with help of regional committees, to commemorate the famous speech given by professor Rudolph Cleveringa on 26 november 1940 in protest of the removal of all Jewish professors from their posts.

This year, more than 40 Cleveringa Meetings will take place all over the world. Most of the lectures at these meetings will be in Dutch, but a few will be in English. Find out more on this last category below. All Meetings, Dutch and English, can be found on this webpage. We hope to see you at one of our annual Cleveringa Meetings.

Summary

Recently the European Court of Human Rights was confronted with the phenomenon of discrimination by association. This may occur, for instance, when a person becomes the victim of racist violence – not because he himself has certain characteristics, but because the perpetrators associate him with someone who does. Thus Ms Skorjanec’s partner was attacked on a market, apparently because of his ethnic (Roma) background. Ms Skorjanec – herself not a Roma – was injured too. The perpetrators were prosecuted and convicted for a racist hate crime. Ms Skorjanec’s partner was recognised as a victim of this crime – but she was not; after all she did not belong to the Roma minority. The Cleveringa lecture provides a good opportunity to reflect on these situations and on the legal questions that arise in this context.

About the speaker

Prof.dr. Rick Lawson holds the chair of European protection of human rights at the Faculty of Law of Leiden University. From 2011-2016 he served as dean of Leiden Law School. In the preceding period he was, inter alia, vice-chair of the LUF.

Summary

Globalisation and economic integration have rapidly increased the attention of for trafficking in human beings (THB) and exploitation. Departing from both a human rights perspective and a perspective of organised crime, workers involved are seen as ‘victims’, even if they do not see themselves as such. THB is a serious crime which is combated accordingly. Individuals who are exploited (the ‘victims’) are not necessarily irregular immigrants, but a common means of pressure in the case of cross-border THB is using the illegal residence or irregular labour status of a migrant worker and the persons fear for deportation. The present lecture will focus on tensions between anti trafficking policies and migration control.
