Human Rights Defenders Custer 3-5 November 2015

For the last few years Masteroni have been invited to teach the human rights defenders cluster in Venice. This year’s edition is currently taking place (from the 3-5 November 2015) and is a great opportunity to contribute to the E.MA programme.

The Masteroni that have returned to Venice to teach this year’s cluster are: Giorgio Caracciolo (2004-5), Sanna Eriksson (2009-10) and Patrick Berg (2000-2001) as well as E.MAlumni Board Member Kersty McCourt who is coordinating the module. The human rights defender cluster looks at the role of HRDs and the current threats and challenges faced given the increasing restrictions on space for civil society. It also looks at case studies from our Masteroni’s own experience from Egypt, Ethiopia and many other countries. We are very excited about it and are sure that it’ll be a success!
