The final meeting of the Translating Freedom network took place at the Centre for Applied Human Rights at the University of York from 1 - 3 July 2013.  The purpose of the workshop was to discuss with practitioners and academics possible research proposals centered around the themes of translation and freedom, and drawing on proceedings in the earlier Rwanda, South Africa, and Egypt workshops. Over the course of the three-day workshop, presentations were given by academics and practitioners from a variety of backgrounds. The following themes emerged:
