The Future of Human Rights: Rising to the Populist Challenge


This talk will discuss the key challenges and transformations of the human rights field in the next decade. It will highlight lessons and insights from other fields of research and practice – from journalism to systems thinking to ecology to neuroscience – that could prove useful for human rights actors to tackle the authoritarian populist challenge to human rights, as well as other systemic threats such as climate change and technological disruption.

Presented by the Human Rights Law Centre, and the Institute for International Law and the Humanities.
