2015 AHRCentre's Annual Public Lecture: Disability Rights - a Global Agenda for the 21st century

By Australian Human Rights Centre (AHRC)

How can international law improve the living conditions of persons with disabilities worldwide, including in countries such as Australia where persons with disabilities experience discrimination in the enjoyment of their rights to employment, education and freedom from violence, as well as other human rights?  Particularly in developing countries, what is the usefulness of international law as a trigger for change?

Join us at the AHRCentre’s 2015 Annual Public Lecture as Gerard Quinn and Graeme Innes AM discuss and debate the relevance of a global agenda for disability rights.  

Graeme Innes AM is the Former Disability Discrimination Commissioner, a human rights lawyer and disability advocate for more than thirty years. 

Professor Gerard Quinn is a former member of the Irish Human Rights Commission and Vice President of the European Committee on Social Rights. 

The conversation will be moderated by Rosemary Kayess.

Following the lecture, join us at the Exhibition Space, Level 1, UNSW Law to view Paula Bronstein's Living with chains, a documentary photography exhibition on people with disabilities in Indonesia. Light refreshments will be served.

Register here.
