On Thursday June 9th, 2016 to a online global audience, Professor Liora Lazarus (Oxford University) gave a thought-provoking webinar on the right to security. The webinar was moderated by Professor Sandra Fredman, OxHRH Director.
The webinar was a great success with active participants from India to Canada and United Kingdom to United States. Participants had the opportunity to ask questions and participate in live audience polls using social media.
The webinar focuses on the historical origins, philosophical foundations, legal protection, and political implications of the right to security. It will show how the right has the potential to protect individuals at risk of harm, while also playing into a larger process of rights securitization.
For those who were unable to attend the live webinar a recording of the event is now available by following this link.
This is the fifth OxHRH webinar. The previous webinar by Professor Sandra Fredman on the Right to Education, by Professor Alan Bogg on the Right to Strike, by Dr Cathryn Costello and Dr Guy Goodwin-Gill on the refugee crisis in Europe and Professor Fiona de Londras on the counter-terrorism after the Paris Attacks can be found here.
