The Challenge of Human Rights Advocacy-Professor Francesca Klug (LSE)

by | Aug 15, 2016

What is distinctive about human rights  advocacy? Does framing an issue in human rights terms produce specific challenges? Does advocating for an ethical framework require us to think about our language, behavior and mode of campaigning? Can a scholar successfully combine advocacy and scholarship without fatally compromising both? Why  has human rights advocacy within the UK faced persistent challenges and a recognized backlash?  Is there grounds for any optimism in this scenario? These are some of the questions that Professor Francesca Klug will address based on 30 years of human rights researching, writing and campaigning within the UK.

A recording of the event can be found here.
