Freedom Rights Project konference: Human Rights Seminar

30 jan 2014, 09:00 - 30 jan 2014, 17:00
Christiansborg

Torsdag d. 30. januar 2014 afholdte tænketanken Freedom Rights Project et seminar om internationale menneskerettigheder på Christiansborg.

Yder menneskerettighedsbegrebet forsat den nødvendige beskyttelse af basale menneskerettigheder? Eller er der over de seneste år sket en øget inflation, som har medvirket til at udvande frem for styrke menneskerettighederne? Og hvad er løsningen? Det er blot nogle af de spørgsmål, som en række internationale og førende forskere, eksperter og samfundsdebattører vil have fokus på under konferencen.

Seminaret var bl.a. foranlediget af af CEPOS' chefjurist Jacob Mchangama, som også er medstifter af Freedom Rights Project.
