AGENDA:

8.30am: Reception and networking
9 - 10.30am: Panel discussion and Q&A
10.30 - 11am: Networking

The rise to power of populist regimes, growing social and economic inequalities, and the dismantling of international norms mean that human rights are facing a backlash. Emerging technologies provide both new risks and opportunities. What should philanthropists do to protect the gains of the past 20-30 years and build a movement fit for the future?

Speakers include:

  • Julie Broome, guest editor of September issue and Director, Ariadne
  • John Kabia, guest editor of September issue and Program Officer for Thematic Initiatives, Fund for Global Human Rights
  • Deborah Doane, partner, Rights CoLab

Questions include:

  • How bad is the global human rights predicament?
  • Who are the major human rights funders and what are their priorities?
  • Is the human rights movement being unfairly blamed for forces beyond its control and resources?
  • Should philanthropy do more to support 'bread and butter' issues - namely, economic and social rights?

What will I get out of it?

  • Hear experienced practitioners discuss their work on the frontlines of human rights
  • Hear from the special feature's guest editors and other experts
  • Get a free copy of Alliance magazine
  • Networking and refreshments with philanthropy-sector peers
  • Debate the latest issues and trends in philanthropy

Who is this for?

  • Philanthropists and foundation staff
  • Philanthropy and social investment professionals
  • Researchers on philanthropy and human rights
  • Think tanks
  • Specialist media
