Human Rights, the last of the CRASSH 'Debating the Evidence' series of day-conferences, will address the practice and theory of Human Rights in the context of pressing issues such as violence against women, rendition, terrorism, the Israel-Palestine conflict, and children's rights. Speakers will address concepts of evidence, as well as 'choice', 'dignity, and 'security', along with current legal definitions of Human Rights.

Co-organized with Cambridge University Centre for Gender Studies, Human Rights will bring together activists and policy experts from Amnesty, Human Rights Watch, Liberty, and the Southall Black Sisters, in dialogue with academics and lawyers specializing in Human Rights issues. The conference will be preceded by a Human Rights film programme and discussion at the Arts Picturehouse.
