The Glasgow Human Rights Network launches ‘The Human Rights Connection’

November 2018,

The Glasgow Human Rights Network has recently launched a new series of events entitled ‘The Human Rights Connection’. These events are designed to connect people within the Glasgow Human Rights Network by creating spaces to meet, talk and get to know one another’s interests and research, and also extending a welcome to all. In the contemporary world, whether in the UK or globally, human rights cannot be taken for granted.  Those who believe in human rights need to come together and work together to support these universal ideals as a framework that enables us to live together.  The Human Rights Connection series offers events designed to be different from orthodox seminars, by creating accessible informal events with varying formats, involving active collective participation and discussion.  A central aim will be to enable participants to get to know one another and make new connections – intellectually and politically, for research and activism.

Next event will be held on the 7th December 2018 at 11am (Room 208, John McIntyre Building). Professor Chantal Mouffe will give a paper entitled ‘An agonistic and pluralist approach to human rights’.
