Symposium ‘Human Rights: The Last Utopia?'

Symposium ‘Human Rights: The Last Utopia?'

March 11, 2011

In May Amnesty International exists fifty years. The Movies that Matter Festival celebrates this with the international symposium ‘Human Rights: The Last Utopia?' and the world premiere When They Are All Free, Tuesday March 29. 

At the symposium speakers will critically reflect on the modern history and conceptual development of human

rights and on their impact. They will also assess the work and future agenda of the human rights movement. Will human rights prove to be a growing power or will they turn out to be just another Utopia?

The speakers are Daniel P.L. Chong, Marie-Bénédicte Dembour, Costas Douzinas and Jan Eckel.
