Venue: KJCC Auditorium // 53 Washington Square South, NYC
Reception to Follow
With Guadalupe Marengo (Head of Global Human Rights Defenders Programme, Amnesty international, UN representative). Moderated by Marisa Belausteguigoitia.
Are the attacks to our right to mobilise increasing? Do activists need to change tactics? Have they changed tactics? Is civic disobedience now more crucial than ever? These are a few of the questions that will be posed in the context of Amnesty International’s activism of close to six decades. What has worked and where did we go wrong that the argument for human rights hasn’t yet been won.
Marisa Belausteguigoitia is the Spring 2019 Andrés Bello Chair in Latin American Cultures and Civilizations, NYU King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center.
