Event Navigation


We live in a world where people’s basic human rights are being denied on an extraordinary scale. This raises immediate questions: who should try to do what about it?

  These dilemmas can be particularly tangled for medical and health professionals. This conference addresses students and scholars of war and peace, healthcare practitioners, human rights organisations and activists. It seeks to:

  •  inform people about medical impacts of human rights violations around the world
  • help health professionals to carry out their duties in difficult and dangerous situations
  • advise civil society organisations on making best use of clinical assistance in campaigning
  • reflect on moral and practical issues that arise.

  The focus is on two central themes:

  • Assisting survivors of conflict zones, prisons and forced migration
  • Documenting and using the evidence – why, how, and at what risk?

  Invited speakers include: Health workers helping survivors of abuses in conflict zones such as the Democratic Republic of Congo; Syria; Ukraine; Gaza; Iraq; Guantanamo Leading clinical ethicists, medical journalists and health workers’ professional bodies   Early booking is advised as places are limited.

The conference will be live-streamed and recorded highlights posted on the web.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
