Active Participation in Human Rights Conference
Amnesty International, the Medical Foundation and the Centre for Applied Human Rights (York University) are organising a conference on Active Participation in Human Rights to be held in London at the Amnesty International, International Secretariat on June 4-5 2011. This conference seeks to bring together human rights practitioners to explore examples, possibilities and challenges of ‘active participation’ within human rights research, advocacy and campaigning. ‘Active participation’ provides exciting opportunities (for example, for increased ownership over rights-based outcomes) but also poses challenges (for instance, how should you respond if rights-holder priorities contradict human rights principles, lie outside organizational capacity or conflict with your organization’s priorities.)
The conference asks: what does ‘active participation’ mean in the context of human rights research, advocacy and campaigning?
