Sydney: RightsTalk: Kenneth Roth, Human Rights Watch

17 April 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

We are watched like never before. Governments, corporations and others are using new technologies to gather huge amounts of information about us. How will this unprecedented surveillance affect our human rights?

International human rights leader, Kenneth Roth, will consider this issue at a public event in Sydney. He will also discuss issues such as the global challenge of refugees and mass displacement, and the rise of populist leaders.

Based in New York, Mr Roth is the Executive Director of Human Rights Watch. Since he started as its worldwide leader in 1993, HRW has become one of the world’s leading human rights organisations, operating in more than 90 countries.

Mr Roth will be joined by Human Rights Commissioner Edward Santow for a RightsTalk hosted by the Australian Human Rights Commission from 5.30pm on Tuesday, 17 April 2018, followed by an audience Q&A.

This event is free and open to the public but spaces are limited.
