Changing the Face of Human Rights

British Institute of Human Rights' Annual Conference 2009: Changing the Face of Human Rights

This innovative one day conference will explore the vital role of the arts, media, government, third sector campaigns and wider civil society in contributing to a fresh vision of human rights - a vision that shows their value and relevance for everyone.

BIHR's experience has shown that the prevailing narrow - and often negative - public discourse about human rights is preventing appropriate, beneficial and widespread use of the Human Rights Act and is a major barrier to people's understanding of human rights.

The conference will capture key debates about human rights and challenge prevailing attitudes. It will influence and engage key decision-makers within the media, public sector and wider civil society organisations to broaden current public understanding of human rights.
