Human Rights, Bloody Human Rights - A business and human rights workshop (17-26 October 2013)

17 October 2013 - 26 October 2013

Time: 1:00 - 1:00am

Queen Mary University of London Law Professor Alan Dignam and Menagerie Theatre Company, in association with Amnesty International UK and Queen Mary Drama, explore the human rights consequences of the global expansion of private power. Join the discussion. Rehearse the future. This exciting workshop uses forum theatre dramatisations to look at the growing reach and influence of multinational corporations, and the consequences for human rights.

But beware! This is not a performance in which to sit back and relax. It is your chance to get involved in the debate, to share your perceptions, questions and potential answers to the problems raised. Focusing on business and human rights, the workshop unpicks the social, cultural, political forces at play within real-life scenarios and aims towards informed solutions. Overturn the democratic deficit with this engaging and imaginative approach to addressing these thorny questions.
