Padua Human Rights Laboratory A.Y. 2013-14

Padua University Human Rights Centre, Library Room

The Master’s programme in Human Rights and Multi-level Governance has invited field experts in human rights and humanitarian action, international organizations’ officers, diplomats, practitioners, and scholars from foreign universities, research centres and international organisations, to address students and the faculty and report on their experience and studies, with critical mind and open attitude. The Laboratory aims at fostering the scientific debate on current human rights topics, and stimulating a cross-cultural approach to issues of concern in Europe and outside Western Europe.

The Laboratory is in two rounds: the first series of lectures took place in November 2013. The programme and a playlist of video-interviews made with the experts involved during the first round of the Laboratory are available at the following link:
