We will explore specifics of human rights promotion with one of the professionals in this field Tomas Vytautas Raskevičius, who chairs Committee on Human Rights of Lithuanian Parliament.

This event will investigate challenging questions such as: what does the term “human rights defender” include? What practical advice could be given to human rights defenders who aim at promoting human rights? How does the role of human rights defender change in different institutional contexts? What is the meaning of “strategic proceedings”? We invite you to join the streaming of the event on Facebook and ask questions in the comments section.

The event will be in English. The moderator is dr. Donatas Murauskas. This discussion is part of the course “Protection of Human Rights in Practice” (Master programme “International and European Law” at Vilnius University Law Faculty).
