Facing the fights ahead: Advancing protection at the new frontiers
17 Nov 2020, 8-9pm AEDT
It’s time for critical thinking on critical issues. People around the world have shown solidarity that few had experienced before the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, societies are revealing a growing nationalism and a shrinking space for human rights defenders; trust in institutions is waning; journalism is being hollowed out; and a crude, angry and often misinformed social media is standing in as our public discourse. How do we advance human rights – including for refugees – amid all this? Our panel of leading thinkers will debate the courses we can take through these challenges.
