forensics and law
A VUB study reveals the dark side of the eugenic doctrine. A study from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the Uiversity of Bournemouth reveal that forced sterilisation didn't stop after WWII. Sweden, for example, abolished its law only in 1976.
Inleiding: Leonardo Villafuerte and Alberto Pecoraro both started their PhD at the Law and Development Research Group. The Law and Development Research Group welcomes two new researchers starting up their PhD.
For this reason the board recently approved a human rights charter, which includes a checklist (impact assessment) for prospective supervisors to assess whether their project or cooperation idea should be rejected in advance or requires advice from the Human Rights Policy Committee on Internationalisation.
There's been some bad blood between scientific publishers and their suppliers and customers. Scientists pay to have their work published. Readers, in turn, pay to read this work, often through the library of their research institution.
Inleiding: LGD is an international, peer reviewed, multidisciplinary journal and has historically carried articles which cover a range of perspectives and approaches. It has a particular focus on encouraging scholars from the Global South to submit papers.
The Brussels Privacy Hub of Vrije Universiteit Brussel has jointly published the Handbook on Data Protection in Humanitarian Action together with the International Committee of the Red Cross. The Handbook offers humanitarian organisations guidance for protecting the personal data of refugees and other victims of emergency situations.
