The Queen Mary Centre for European Research is hosting the following event: The Right to Rescue: A Human Rights Defender Framework, on March 25, 2019, 18:30-20:00 at Arts One Lecture Theatre, Queen Mary University of London.
"The so-called migration crisis that Europe has witnessed in the past years has generated much political turmoil across the continent. While a great number of refugees lose their lives on sea routes or suffer due to inhumane circumstances awaiting them along the Schengen borders, European decision-makers seem to focus increasingly on defending the Union’s frontier and less on protecting the lives of those arriving from abroad. Should the EU have a different approach putting the lives and dignity of individuals in the focus of its attention during policy making? Is the protection of human rights and the provision of security to European citizens necessarily a zero-sum game?"
Keynote Speaker: Dr Violeta Moreno-Lax, Centre for European Research, Queen Mary University of London
Discussant: Pia Oberoi, Advisor on Migration and Human Rights, Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights
Chair: Dr Sarah Wolff, Director of the Centre for European Research, Queen Mary University of London
