The Institute will celebrate its 30th anniversary this October with several days of events to both commemorate its achievements over the past 30 years and look ahead to the future.
The theme of the anniversary will be centered on human rights education, a key feature of the Institute’s work over the past 30 years.
“Human rights education is an important part of the tool box which helps us all make a difference,” says Rolf Ring, Acting Director of RWI. “It’s one way the Institute hopes to promote respect for universal human rights and humanitarian law, which is our mission. That is why we have chosen to focus on human rights education for our 30th Anniversary Conference.”
The Anniversary Event will be held in Lund, Sweden on 22 and 23 October.
A day-long conference on “Human Rights Education” will be held on 22 October. The event is invitation only and will feature several panel discussions with leading figures from the human rights field.
A public debate, “Human Rights Education in a Changing World”, will be held on 22 October at 17:30 at Kulturen in Lund.
