Alpbach Forum to discuss human rights under pressure

On 26 August, during this year’s Alpbach Forum, FRA and the International Ombudsman Institute will run a session on human rights under pressure.

It will explore the role Ombudspersons and National Human Rights Institutions can play in strengthening democracy and the rule of law.

It will also examine the various pressures human rights defenders face in their daily work to promote and protect rights.
