Join us at our free talk on human rights

Come and join us for a free talk on Thursday 21st March at the Manx Museum as we explore the role of human rights in today’s complex world. Do they still hold out the promise of a better future? And how are they being used to defend our liberty, equality and justice?

Starting at 7pm, the talk is part of our work marking the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and will feature three short presentations followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A.

Speakers include Ken Corlett who will talk about his experience of human rights investigations in conflict zones, Dawn Kinnish MLC who will talk about the interaction between human rights and equality, and Andrew Langan-Newton who will consider how human rights law could shape action on climate change.

Suitable for anyone with an interest in current affairs, social justice or global issues. Students are very welcome.

Although the talk is free to attend, tickets should be booked either through Eventbrite at or by calling us on 310191.
