Amnesty members in Scotland (and beyond) will be gathering in Edinburgh for our annual conference.
The theme of this year’s conference is Brave: Human Rights Defenders.
This new global campaign aims to strengthen the recognition and protection of human rights defenders. The campaign is in response to the increased attacks and targeting of human rights defenders, activists and civil society organisations around the world.
Our keynote speaker will be Boniface Massah, Director of the Association of People with Albinism in Malawi, who will reflect on his experiences as a human rights defender in Malawi.
Date: Saturday, 18 November 2017
Time: 10am – 4.30pm
