Transatlantic Human Rights Cooperation: An Armchair Discussion with the EU Special Representative for Human Rights

July 17, 2019 • 9:00 – 10:00 am EDT
The Human Rights Initiative at CSIS invites you to an armchair discussion on transatlantic human rights cooperation with the EU Special Representative on Human Rights.
The EU Special Representative for Human Rights, Eamon Gilmore, will discuss the EU’s human rights priorities and opportunities for transatlantic cooperation.  He will focus on the EU’s approach to issues such as the ongoing crisis in Myanmar, additional ways to protect human rights defenders and civil society amidst rising authoritarianism, and human rights abuses across the world including in China. 
At a time when the need for multilateral institutions is being questioned, the EU remains deeply committed to them.  Why does the EU continue to believe that these institutions are essential to defending our values and interests, and how can the EU and US work together to improve the human rights situation globally?

This event is made possible through general support.
