Human Rights Watch: Confronting Global Challenges 

Special guest: Kenneth Roth, Executive Director of Human Rights Watch

12-1:30 p.m.

After more than a generation of progress, the global human rights movement finds itself at a critical moment. We face traditional challenges from emboldened autocrats, ruthless conflicts, and a mounting flow of refugees. But we also face new threats – a surge in fundamental attacks on the very values underlying our movement. Executive Director of Human Rights Watch Kenneth Roth joins us to discuss this changing landscape and defending the core value that human rights are universal.
