2017 Annual Colloquium on Fundamental Rights

Human Rights
Date: Monday, 20 November 2017 08:30 - 17:30

Venue: Contact organisers for location details  |  City: Brussels, Belgium

The 2017 edition of the Annual Colloquium on Fundamental Rights will focus on "women's rights in turbulent times". The objective of the Annual Colloquium is to improve mutual cooperation and greater political engagement for the promotion and protection of key fundamental rights in the EU.

This year's Colloquium will bring together key policy makers in the EU, researchers and journalists, as well as representatives from civil society, businesses and international organisations. They will focus - from a fundamental rights perspective - on the relationship between strong fundamental rights for women, and resilient democratic societies.

The wide range of topics for discussion will include the link between misogyny in society and the violation of the fundamental rights of women; women's economic and political empowerment and the key obstacles to gender equality; the international women's movement and the shrinking space for civil society; violence against women and links to other forms of violence in society; and gender stereotypes, culture, and attitudes.

Last year's Colloquium, which focussed on media pluralism and democracy, led to concrete actions which are now being implemented at various levels. Information on last year's Colloquium is available here.
