The School of Law and the Human Rights Centre will celebrate the life and work of Professor Kevin Boyle with a memorial conference on 26 November 2011. It will take place in the Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall at the Colchester Campus.

The event pays tribute to his legacy in all these areas by focusing on those fields of human rights that were of special importance to him, such as freedom of expression and religion, minority rights, democracy and human rights, and states of emergency.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Colin Riordan, will open the conference and will be followed by keynote speaker, Mary Robinson, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights from 1997 to 2002 and former President of Ireland.
