Annual Conference 2011: Programme details

The programme for the conference Human Rights at Home: an agenda for fairness followed three themes aiming to enable delegates to consider the role and applications of human rights to achieve fairness in times of austerity 
and political change:

 
  • Human rights realities: Ten years on
  • Human Rights: Prospects and Problems
  • Human Rights in Action (kindly supported by NCVO Campaigning Effectiveness
 
Speakers, panel discussion, workshops and interactive learning gave delegates the opportunity to participate in an assessment of how human rights have been brought to life in the last ten years, gain practical insights that can be applied in a broad range of contexts in the future, and explore the challenges and conundrums facing policy-makers, service providers and those in the voluntary sector working to promote and defend equality.
