Jacob Mchangama is attending the Annual Conference on Human Rights 2017 -Are Human Rights in freefall?
Where he will take part in:
Europe’s bureaucratic and often project-based system is having trouble meeting the new challenges of today. We have been hit with a rise in populism and terrorism, extremist movements and the popularity of isolationist policies, a migration crisis and the closing of borders. A sense of security and protection are inevitable preconditions for the guarantee of human rights, but these can only be achieved through international agreements.

Jacob Mchangama, Lawyer, and human rights expert
Daniel Mitov, Former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bulgaria
David Griffiths, Head of the Office of the Secretary-General at Amnesty International
