Learning from HRDs - Between East & West: Human Rights in Russia

Friday 30 October 2015, 1.00PM

Speaker(s): Natalia Zviagina (Inter-regional Human Rights Group)

Natalia Zviagina discusses human rights in the Russian context; how concepts of rights have developed since the fall of the Soviet Union and now against the backdrop of the rising Chinese economic miracle. She will also focus on the Russian 'foreign agents law' which requires NGOs to register as foreign agents if they receive foreign funding, and discusses the impact this has on the work of human rights NGOs.
