Speaking Truth to Power: lecture on human rights defenders at NALSAR

Today I gave a 45 minutes lecture for administrative law students at NALSAR Law University on the institution of human rights defenders. After sharing my personal story of how I became a human rights defender, I was talking on the challenges, needs and successes human rights advocates face on a day to day basis. The lecture was followed by another 45 minutes of lively discussions, covering as wide issues as the responsibility of international organisations, legal capacity of persons with disabilities, human rights and democracy, to mention but a few.
