The purpose of the Conference was to discuss the nature and significance of NATO’s commitment to international human rights and the rule of law. In particular, speakers will address NATO’s changing role  in the global context of the fight against terrorism post-9/11, and, inter alia, examine NATO’s role in the rendition of terrorist suspects to secret prisons and torture sites.

With experienced and prestigious speakers ranging from academics, lawyers, and victims of human rights violations, to representatives of NATO and the European Court of Human Rights, the conference was a unique platform to debate critical questions which took place on the eve of NATO’s 60th Anniversary Summit in Strasbourg, and four months after the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration for Human Rights.

The conference will be a one day and contain three panels and a keynote address. It will take place in the 18th century famous “Salle Mozart”, 1 rue du Miroir, in the heart of the city of Strasbourg (http://sallemozart.free.fr/) from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM.
