Human Rights: Culture and Critique One-Day Symposium
June 22 @ 10:00 am - 4:15 pm
Location: Royal Irish Academy, 19 Dawson Street Dublin 2, Ireland
Organised by: Conflict, Humanitarianism and Security
The human rights movement has done a great deal of good in improving the lives of people around the globe, however its embodiment as an ‘ethics of progress’ is increasingly being questioned. This one-day symposium explores the relationship between human rights and the social sciences, their differences of approach and their mutually complementary roles and features a number of international speakers. Full details of the programme can be found here.
Conference attendees are invited afterwards to the European premiere of the film It Stays With You: Use of Force by UN Peacekeepers in Haiti, directed by Cahal McLaughlin and Siobhán Wills, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council followed by a reception.
There is a nominal charge of €5 to cover refreshments and lunch for this event so please RSVP here.
The event will attract 4 CPD points and certificates of attendance will be available. Please feel free to share this invitation within your organisation and with colleagues.
