Human Rights in Practice
Exploring the practice of human rights.
On Thursday 12 December a roundtable discussion was held which focussed on how to be an ethical and effective human rights practitioner. The expert panel consisted of the following leading human rights experts;
- Brian Gormally, the Director of the Committee on the Administration of Justice (CAJ),
- Professor Fionnuala Ní Aoláin, who is a Professor of Law in Queen’s University Belfast as well as the UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism,
- John O’Doherty, the Director of The Rainbow Project
- Dessie Donnelly, the Director (Development) at Participation and the Practice of Rights (PPR).
An interactive Q&A session was conducted after the speakers had shared about their personal experience and work. This allowed students and members of the public an opportunity to understand how human rights were being promoted systematically in non-governmental organisations, the United Nations and beyond.
