The challenges of leadership in a human rights context (webinar)

August 14, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


  • How do human rights leaders navigate difficult and risky contexts?
  • What do human rights defenders prioritise in terms of leadership over the short- and long-term?
  • How might the practice of human rights leadership be supported or strengthened?
The Centre for Applied Human Rights (CAHR) is offering a free webinar on 14 August to launch the recent CAHR Working Paper “Human Rights Leadership – Towards a research and practice agenda in challenging times”.
The webinar will feature fellows from CAHR’s Defender fellowships sharing their insights into leadership within the human rights movement. The webinar will be an opportunity to reflect on how leadership within the human rights movement can be supported, and to explore the priorities for promoting and developing good leadership in a human rights context.
The webinars will be of interest to those in the movement, those who support them, funders, students of human rights practice, and researchers and practitioners in leadership, well-being, organisational effectiveness, and international development.
