Defending Human Rights Defenders - lecture by Mary Lawlor

Mary Lawlor, the founder of the Front Line Defenders and an adjunct professor, Trinity Business School, gave a lecture on 'Defending Human Rights Defenders' at the Irish School of Ecumenics on 24 February.

In her lecture, Mary shared stories of human rights defenders in several countries and how the Front Line Defenders protected them and assisted them in defending human rights. She emphasised that human rights violations have been repeated all around the world, but the oppressors will lose eventually. We should continue to choose humanity over brutality and hope over despair everyday.
