Human Rights and Social Justice: Linking Aspirations and Realities

This seminar series aims to explore the inter-relationships between human rights and social justice, from both theoretical and practical perspectives. The speakers include academics from a range of disciplines and representatives of civil society, public bodies and UN experts.
The format of each seminar (with a speaker, responder and questions/comment from the floor) is intended to facilitate a real opportunity to exchange ideas (inter-disciplinary, inter-sector and inter-agency). The seminars will be followed by a reception, allowing further informal discussion and networking.
Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required as places are strictly limited. To register email giving your name, organisation affiliation and contact email address.
