On May 31st it is World No Tobacco Day (see http://www.who.int/tobacco/)wntd/en/. We would like to grasp this opportunity to launch GHLG’s Platform for Tobacco Control, which you find on this link: http://www.rug.nl/research/groningen-centre-for-law-and-governance/organisatie/ghlg/tobacco-control.
Within the framework of this platform we will pay attention to the fight against smoking in the Netherlands and around the world. We will discuss the potential of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control and human rights standards, and how can they be applied most effectively at the domestic level. We will pay ample attention to the current pending case against the Netherlands.
The platform brings together experts from law, medicine and civil society and it seeks to generate a multidisciplinary discussion on this matter.
