The relationship between human rights and conflict is one of the complex, zeitgeist issues we’ll be bringing to the floor for some of the world’s leading thinkers to explore at this year’s Integrity 20 conference, Age of Insecurities.
Human rights abuses are not only prevalent in conflict zones but global conflict and instability are resulting in record levels of forced displacement.
Anna Neistat - Human Rights Activist
One of this year’s preeminent Integrity 20 speakers is Anna Neistat, human rights activist and lawyer, who will join us to speak about her work exposing abuses in conflict zones and secretive regimes. Dr. Neistat leads Amnesty International’s global research and previously, as associate director for Program at Human Rights Watch, Anna conducted over 60 investigations in conflict areas around the world, including Syria and Afghanistan.
It is not naive to raise human rights issues in security debates; it is naive to ignore them: https://t.co/2jmP87Zjjk— Anna Neistat (@AnnaNeistat) July 9, 2016
