Advancing Sexual Rights in the “Developing World”: The Politics of Human Rights Interventionism

15 April 2012

Date: 10 May 2012, 18:30-20:00

Location: The Bloomsbury Suite, Friends House, 173-177 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BJ

About the event: What is the appropriate role of international human rights and humanitarian organisations in the “developing world”? If international human rights and humanitarian actions are to genuinely be a strategy for solidarity, what should be their premises and their rules? Are there cases where solidarity in defence of human rights is “wrong” or unhelpful? Are there certain cases, involving the most culturally sensitive rights related to sexuality, where the appropriateness of international intervention requires special consideration?
