Protests at austerity measures imposed by governments across the globe have called into question the impact spending cuts have on the human rights of populations – a topic which will be hotly debated in Hendon on 28 February.
Millions across Europe are questioning the ideologies behind the budgetary cuts and challenging the claims they will ultimately boost economic growth. As the impact of these measures hit different sectors of the population concerns grow about the cost of budgetary cuts on human rights.
United Nations Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights Dr Magdalena Sepúlveda-Carmona and Senior Research Fellow at Middlesex University Alice Donald will take part in the Middlesex University law debate chaired by Dr Elvira Dominguez Redondo.
This debate will focus on the effect of the spending cuts on human rights in the UK and in other countries affected by the implementation of austerity measures.
The debate takes place on Thursday 28 February from 2pm in Hendon Town Hall council chamber, The Burroughs, NW4 4AX.
