Facing today’s pressing human rights challenges

The FRA Director will speak with civil society organisations at a public event on human rights and the rise of populism in the EU on 25 October in New York.

The event is being hosted by the Open Society Foundation and the Jacob Blaustein Institute for the Advancement of Human Rights. Then from 28 to 29 October, the Director will take part in an international conference bringing together leading human rights advocates to pay tribute to the late Sir Nigel Rodley, a prominent human rights lawyer. Together with the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, he will speak on current challenges facing the international human rights community. The Sir Nigel Rodley Human Rights Conference is organised by the Urban Morgan Institute for Human Rights at the University of Cincinnati College of Law in Ohio.
