Human rights in times of economic crisis final

Speaker: Professor Aoife Nolan

Chair: Professor Paul Heywood

There has never been such extensive recognition accorded to human rights, but how can we ensure that they have meaning in times of economic crisis?

This lecture will focus on the negligible role that human rights have played in preventing and challenging the impacts of the recent economic crisis on the most vulnerable in global society. It will consider why this has been the case, and outline how we need to change our understanding of and approach to human rights in order to make them more effective tools of protection in the case of future crises.
