Human Rights: Beneath the Headlines

Ever read a headline about human rights and wondered if there was more to the story?

Join us for the second of our series of evening events to discuss some of the most commonly reported human rights stories, as we go Beneath the Headlines.

We will look at some of the big issues that continue to feature in reporting as well as recent human rights stories in 2014. Audience members are encouraged to submit media reports and related questions before the event, and panellists will address these during the event.*  The interactive session will also leave room for audience questions and participation.

Panel to include:

- Adam Wagner (1 Crown Office Row)

- Emma Jones (Leigh Day solicitors)

- Sanchita Hosali (British Institute of Human Rights)
