An exciting list of expert speakers addressing a wide range of human rights themes are coming together for an evening of sharing ideas.
Speakers so far include:
Frank Jannuzi Amnesty International USA
Sammy Douglas DUP
Nicola Browne, PPR Project
Hector Aristizabal, ImaginAction
Daniel Holder, Committee on the Administration of Justice (CAJ)
Hannah Russell, QUB PhD candidate
Chris Moore, journalist / writer
Ruth O’Reilly, editor of The Detail
Phil Scraton, QUB Law / Institute of Criminology and Criminal Justice
Kellie Turtle, Belfast Feminist Network
The event couldn’t be held at a more appropriate and thought-provoking building – Belfast’s Crumlin Road Gaol, the city’s main prison for 150 years. Through its history, it was the unwelcome home for suffragettes, internees, paramilitaries and even ODCs, ‘ordinary decent criminals’. Some of whom were destined for the prison’s gallows.
As well as an evening of fantastic speakers, reception and discussion time will be held in the circle of the actual Gaol.
