The Human Rights Talks are a series of events hosted by the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Fundamental and Human Rights and the University of Vienna. The events intend to make current human rights issues accessible to the interested public, and to make the social and political relevance of human rights visible.
The events present top speakers who address human rights challenges in a differentiated manner and at a high intellectual level, in a way that is accessible and relevant even for non-specialists. An important part of the format is interaction with the audience, who are encouraged to participate in the discussion. The objective of the Human Rights Talks is to establish the human rights perspective on politics, business and society among a wider audience.
