Human Rights Weekend 2016 The Power of One
Human Rights Watch presents in collaboration with De Balie the fourth edition of the Human Rights Weekend. The Weekend is filled with human rights films and debates with directors, Human Rights Watch experts, photographers and journalists. Topics such as refugees, human rights and diplomacy, justice versus peace, Human Rights Watch and the media, and failed and fragile states will be discussed. The event will cover a broad geography, from Iran to Latin America and from Europe and the US to North Korea.
This year's theme is ‘The Power of One’, demonstrating the power of a single individual (for good or for evil) to impact people and events as well as provoke major change. The Weekend will be opened by Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch.
Partners: ASN Bank, De Balie, De Groene Amsterdammer, Stichting Vluchteling.
The official spoken language for all programs will be English.
