Human rights and populism: how to protect, promote and communicate fundamental rights in times of change?

The Agency together with the European Forum Alpbach are hosting a panel debate on how to protect, promote and communicate fundamental rights in times of change on 28 August during this year's Forum.

FRA's Director, Michael O'Flaherty, will chair the debate. The debate seeks to find ways to counter populist views that human rights benefit others rather than every member of society. It also aims to explore how to convince the many policy makers that fail to see the added value of accepting human rights-based approaches.
