Title: More than a T-shirt: how ordinary people can prevent human rights abuses (some of the time)
This interactive session will explore how ordinary people can deter violence in areas affected by conflict to support the work of local human rights defenders and other civil society organisations. It will draw upon PBI's experience but will also consider the problems and limitations inherent in such work. WARNING; this will be not be a lecture and there will be no Powerpoint slides.
The Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) Speaker Series is a regular student-focused forum that draws on the expertise of a range of practitioners, academics and researchers both within HCRI and more widely, covering a broad range of humanitarian-related issues and contexts.
The Speaker Series provides an opportunity to learn from and interact with scholars and practitioners in an informal and intimate environment in order to gain insights from people's own experiences.
