60 / 60 – The Role of NATO Post 9-11 Event
The purpose of the April 1st 2009, 60/60 Conference in Strasbourg, France is to discuss the nature and significance of NATO’s commitment to international human rights and the rule of law. In particular, speakers will address NATO’s changing role post-9/11 in the global context of the fight against terrorism, and examine NATO’s role in the rendition of terrorist suspects to secret prisons and torture sites. With experienced and prestigious speakers ranging from academics, lawyers, investigators, to representatives of NATO and the European Court of Human Rights, the conference will be a unique platform to debate critical questions on the eve of NATO’s 60th Anniversary Summit – to take place in Strasbourg two days later – and four months after the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration for Human Rights (UDHR).
This conference is free and open to the public, but because seating is limited, you can register here to secure yourself a seat.
