The conference will be conducted as a researchers' workshop and will take place at the Leodardo City Tower Hotel, Ramat Gan, Israel, on January 5-6, 2011.

The works presented will be published after a "double blind" peer review in the journal Law & Ethics of Human Rights (published by Berkley Electronic Press).
