Past Events

14 September 2018, NNHRR and SIM meet and greet with Agnes Callamard on “The work and challenges of a UN human rights rapporteur” and SIM Peter Baehr lecture by Agnes Callamard, UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions

The Netherlands Network for Human Rights Research and the Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM) of Utrecht University co-organised a special meet and greet event with UN rapporteur Agnes Callamard, UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, on ‘The work and challenges of a UN human rights rapporteur’. It was a closed meeting based on Chatham House rules. The participants had a unique opportunity to communicate with the Special Rapporteur, ask questions about her work and about the challenges faced by the UN Special Rapporteurs in general.

Following that event, the Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM) organised the SIM Peter Baehr lecture 2018. It was a special occasion for the Institute, as the lecture was organised on SIM’s 37th anniversary. The lecture was delivered by Agnes Callamard. It was followed by a further discussion with the Special Rapporteur and informal drinks.

In sum, the event was very successful. It allowed the participants to learn more about daily work of the Special Rapporteur and the challenges she faces on the daily basis.
