Human Rights Masters
What does it take to force the UN to act when human rights violations are taking place? What role do human rights play in the practice of international relations? And how can the prohibition of torture actually be implemented? We are proud to announce that on 21 March and 23 March two famous Human Rights Masters will be discussing these topics at the Movies that Matter Festival. Theo van Boven and Sir Nigel Rodley will be our guests in The Hague. And you are welcome to meet them!
