Human Rights and the Law
Sometimes human rights movements use the law as a vehicle to pursue their agendas, sometimes they deliberately disobey the law to pursue their agendas. Whether it be through civil disobedience or enacting reform, human rights activists across many different movements have used the laws in different and creative ways to pursue objectives. The experts in this panel will join together to explore the different ways which the law can be used, and how those ways may be better suited for different movements.
