International Conference: Lawyers as Human Rights Defenders
Lawyers play an undeniable role in promoting peace, justice, human rights and the rule of law. Nevertheless, what protections are available at the international level, particularly through the emerging European Convention on the Profession of Lawyer? In a discussion, participants will get to the bottom of this question.
Lawyers from conflict countries, and in Europe, such as Bulgaria, Hungary, Turkey, Russia, Afghanistan, Syria and Ukraine will provide an insight into their work. They report on current cases and enormous difficulties they are confronted with.
The Federal Minister of Justice, Dr. Marco Buschmann, will deliver the keynote speech at the conference.
The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom and the German Bar Association cordially invite you to this international conference, which will be held on 8 December 2022 at 13:00-19:00 in Berlin.
