Launch of ECCHR’s 2020 Annual Report and interactive platform ECCHR EXPLORE  

How did human rights fare in 2020 – amid lockdowns, the hope for a vaccine for everyone and in the face of an impending economic downturn

Releasing the ECCHR 2020 Annual Report, we invite you to join us for a discussion about the challenges we have weathered and the successes we have celebrated over the last year.  

Together with Barbara Unmüßig, co-president of the Heinrich Böll Foundation, Joshua Castellino, executive director of Minority Rights Group International and member of ECCHR’s advisory board, and Wolfgang Kaleck, ECCHR general secretary, we will look back on a year full of setbacks and new perspectives.

WHEN: 16 APRIL 2021, 12 pm to 1 pm CEST

WHERE: Online via Zoom – please register below

In case you are not able to attend the event, feel free to already take a look at our new annual report.

We will also launch our new interactive platform ECCHR EXPLORE and our podcast Framing Human Rights – a series of conversations evolving around the power arts can have in the global fight for justice. We invite you to listen to our talks between renowned artists and lawyers to find out how the interplay of artistic and legal interventions can create change and empower social movements.

We will officially start ECCHR EXPLORE with a discussion between Priya Basil, writer, activist and ECCHR board member, and Wolfgang Kaleck. The talk will be available as a video on our YouTube channel from 16 April 2021.

Please note that the Lunch Talk will be held in English. It will also be streamed live via Facebook.
