Om arrangementet

 

In 2018, it is 20 years since the UN Declaration on Human Rights Defenders was adopted. Norway was a leading promotor of the Declaration.

Today we witness that respect for human rights is deteriorating in several European countries. The environment for human rights work is becoming increasingly difficult. At the event, we’ll meet three persons who know this by personal experience; from Turkey, Hungary and Russia. They are in the center of the ongoing struggle for human rights in Europe.

We ask: What has the Declaration on Human Rights Defenders achieved? How can it be used in today’s situation? What role does Norway play and how can central and local authorities in Norway do more to support the activists?

Moderator:

Ingvild Lyberg, Deputy Secretary General, Amnesty International Norway
