Iran Human Rights Review: Where now for human rights in Iran?
Date: Tuesday 6th December,
Venue: Wilson Room, Portcullis House, Houses of Parliament, London, SW1A 2LW
- Fabian Hamilton MP, Shadow Foreign Affairs and Defence Minister
- Tahirih Danesh, Chief Editor, Iran Human Rights Review
This event will take place as Iran looks ahead to a Presidential election in May 2017, where even the challenging human rights situation under the Rouhani Presidency is at risk of deteriorating further under growing pressure from hardliners. It will explore the current culture of human rights in Iran and attempts by sections of the regime to position personal freedoms as threats to Iran's security. The seminar will focus on the themes of the three latest editions of the FPC's Iran Human Rights Review: the human rights impact of the economy as sanctions are slowly lifted; issues of women and human rights; and the upcoming edition on due process (due to launch in early 2017). The event will bring together a mixed panel of politicians and experts on human rights in Iran and will be attended by a diverse audience of politicians, civil servants, NGO representatives, academics, diplomats, campaigners and interested members of the public.
