13 January 2017

Het thema van het Human Rights Weekend 2017 is Behind the headlines. Tijdens dit weekend gaan journalisten, onderzoekers, politici, juristen dieper in op de mensenrechtenschendingen die de kranten niet haalden, en ze achterhalen cruciale achtergrondinformatie bij het nieuws dat wel op de voorpagina’s stond. Het NIOD Instituut voor Oorlogs-, Holocaust- en Genocidestudies is partner.

 

The weekend is filled with human rights films, master classes and discussions with film directors, Human Rights Watch researchers, journalists, government officials and others about topics such as international criminal justice, unaccompanied child refugees, police militarisation, freedom of expression, sexual violence as a weapon of war, environment and human rights, schools and hospitals under attack, and Trump and human rights. The event covers a wide range of countries, from Rwanda to the United States and from Burma (Myanmar) to Denmark.
