From 1-6 October, São Paulo will receive activists and social change agents from 27 countries for the 15th edition of the International Human Rights Colloquium. Under the theme “Human rights: crisis or transition?”, the purpose of the event is to promote the exchange of knowledge and practices with people who work closely on the topic.

This year, Conectas is organizing the conference together with FORUM-ASIA, the Center for Human Rights of the University of Pretoria (South Africa) and DeJusticia (Colombia).

The Colloquium received a record number of registrations: more than 400 people participated in the selection process and 62 were selected to take part in the week of talks and activities. The selected group work in various areas associated with human rights, such as reproductive rights, protection of personal data and online information, combating racism, tackling institutional violence and others.

Ever since its first edition, the Colloquium has addressed important topics like the criminalization of protests, NGO financing and human rights violations by companies. This year, the idea is to promote a collective reflection on the role of the human rights movement in the current context of threats to rights and freedoms.

To guide the discussions, the event will draw on four key issues: the global context and its impacts on rights and freedoms; the legitimacy and diversity of organizations; how the tools used by the human rights movement can be improved and innovated; and how organizations can diversify their alliances with different players.
