The London International Human Rights Congress 2011
"Immigration & Integration in an Age of Austerity: Challenges and Opportunities"
(London, November 22nd - 25th, 2011)
Dear Sir/ Madam,
The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy is currently accepting applications for the event outlined above, which will take place in London during November 2011. The program will bring together governmental and diplomatic officials, civil society practitioners, private sector representatives, journalists, young professionals, students and scholars and other interested stakeholders from across the world for a program of lectures, workshops, group discussions and cultural excursions featuring leading figures from the fields of politics, civil society, academia, and the media.
The London International Human Rights Congress is an international Conference held annually by the ICD and other leading organizations in a different global capital city. The aim of the conference this year is to reflect on the operation and application of Human Rights with particular focus on Immigration and Integration. The program will consist of lectures, seminars, debates and panel discussions that will feature leading figures from international politics & diplomacy, academia, civil society, and the private sector.
Since the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, the dignity and respect afforded to the protection of Human Rights across the Globe has faced an unprecedented amount of challenges. In our Globalised and Multicultural world rights relating to Immigration and Integration are those which are both most important in terms of International Relations, and those most at risk. It is during times like these that the International Human Rights framework is tested in a way like never before. Raising new questions such as how far should National Financial or Economic failings be allowed to influence the Universality of access to fundamental rights? The London International Human Rights Congress will discuss the challenges and opportunities which arise in the quest to protect Human Rights in the 21st Century.
The conference is open to applications from diplomatic and political representatives, civil society practitioners, young professionals, students and scholars, private sector figures, journalists, and other interested stakeholders in international relations from across the world.
