7 tot 10 februari Amsterdam Human Rights weekend


Human Rights Watch, De Balie and partners present the seventh edition of the Human Rights Weekend on 7-10 February at De Balie in Amsterdam. Sigrid Kaag, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, is the keynote speaker of this edition.

This year’s Human Rights Weekend invites you to reflect: What is your opinion on important human rights issues of our time? How are you indirectly involved in human rights violations elsewhere? What role could you play in defending human rights?

Find out where you stand and learn more about human rights, by participating in a weekend of films, discussions and photography. Meet film directors, Human Rights Watch researchers, journalists, members of parliament and others and discover your position on topics such as the link between modern slavery and your seafood, the challenges to democracy and migration in Europe, increasing pressure on press freedom, forgotten war crimes and the impact of artificial intelligence on human rights.

The event covers a wide range of countries, from Spain to Iraq and from Thailand to Israel/Palestine. Join us in Amsterdam, and find out where you stand.

All programs will be in English.
