The Swedish Forum for Human Rights (MR-Dagarna) is the largest venue of its kind in the Nordic countries and is this year addressing human rights from a more uncommon angle – violence.
This year’s theme incorporates different aspects of violence, like sexualized, political and structural violence, hate crimes and harassment. Additional topics like hate and threats online, men’s violence against women, violence in close relations and violence in conflict zones are also being brought up.
As one of eleven organisers of the event, RWI is yet again part of supporting the forum which this year celebrates its 18th year. The Institute is organising several seminars and will, as always, attend the forum and have staff representing the institute during the days in Stockholm 15-17 November.
About the seminars
The seminars by RWI will be focusing on:
– violence against people with disabilities
– the link between corruption and human rights
– human rights in company’s supply chains
– border deaths
Gabriel Stein, the head of communications at RWI, says the Institute has been a long-time partner for the planning, funding and organizing of the Swedish Forum for Human Rights. Stein also adds:
This is a unique and powerful meeting of many of the key actors in society working in some way or another with issues related to human rights. With human rights under threat in many parts of the world these days, this event is more relevant than ever.
The tickets for this year’s venue are now available at a discounted price until the end of June.
