Introduction: European conference on human rights beyond territorial borders in the context of contemporary challenges.

Prof Wouter Vandenhole, Dr Arne Vandenbogaerde, Dr Rachel Hammonds and Ms Gamze Erdem Turkelli of the Law and Development Research Group of the University of Antwerp participated in the European Conference of the Extraterritorial Obligations (ETO) Consortium on 28 -29 September 2017.

The conference explored human rights beyond territorial borders in the context of contemporary challenges posed by debt, austerity, monetary reform, financialisation as well as climate change and ecological distress.

Participating scholars and civil society representatives also shared insights on extraterritorial obligations in the context of investment and trade as well as the regulation of the activities of business enterprises, including the ongoing work in the UN Human Rights Council on a binding instrument on business and human rights.
