Islam and Human Rights - Rethinking Universalism and Justice in a Fragmented World
The complex and multifaceted relationship between Islam and human rights has given rise to increasingly high-profile debates over the past decade – both in the Islamic world and in Western contexts. Held on the 4 March 2021 at the University of Luxembourg, Islam and Human Rights - Rethinking Universalism is an International Digital Conference that addresses the often-posed question of the ‘reconciliation’ of Islam and human rights, the conference seeks to move beyond this binary framing of the subject, forcing us to probe our perhaps preconceived understandings of the universality of human rights and the presumed secularity of many of our national states.
Boys are cowboys and girls are princesses. From an early age on, we are conditioned by gender-based stereotypes, perpetuated by our close environment including our parents, our teachers, films, books and the media. Even when conveyed unconsciously, those stereotypes affect children’s social development, shape their self-image, influence their educational choices, and consequently may lead to discrimination and gender inequalities.
To raise awareness for stereotyping and challenge traditional gender conceptions, the Ministry of Equality between Women and Men together with the University of Luxembourg’s MediaCentre, created a series of web talks, where experts discuss their perspective on gender stereotyping. Those web talks are part of an on-going collaboration between the ministry and the University to develop a gender policy based on scientific evidence.

The Ends of Humanities
The humanities have a general responsibility towards society and one of their mandates is to preserve the cultural skills and knowledge societies depend on. Their role is to reveal alternatives in dealing with current issues and future challenges.
The conference The Ends of the Humanities seeks to underline the various ways in which the humanities engage with the future and inform ongoing cultural processes; at the same time, it acknowledges that to ensure their survival, the humanities must reach beyond established traditions in teaching and research. More specifically, it aims to examine how individual fields position themselves in relation to different social issues in the humanities – and which areas need to be developed further. Papers will investigate the relationship between the humanities on the one hand, and ethics, cultural and social politics, the education system, the law, the economy, new technologies and other sciences, on the other.

Humanities.
