Human Rights in the UK Media: Representation and Reality
Dr. Michelle Farrell of the School of Law, University of Liverpool, is organising a fascinating conference on the theme of 'Human Rights in the UK Media' on 19 September 2014. This seminar, supported by the Modern Law Review, brings together constitutional and international law researchers, media and communications researchers, journalists, legal practitioners and civil society actors for an interdisciplinary discussion on the media's representation of human rights. The seminar will facilitate a bridging of the gap between theoretical and practical understandings of human rights and encourage knowledge exchange on human rights as seen from various perspectives.
The programme includes Professor Colm O'Cinneide (UCL); Nuala Mole (AIRE Centre); Dr Aoife Daly (Liverpool); Dr Michael Kearney (Sussex); Colin Murray (Newcastle); Susanna Sampaio Dias (Cardiff), and Owen Bowcott (The Guardian). The keynote speaker is Professor David Mead from the University of East Anglia.
