February 6, 2015

An international conference on Human Rights and Counter-terrorism is being convened in Geneva on 16-17 February by The Global Network for Rights and Development (GNRD) headquartered in Stavanger, Norway. Reported by Business Wire on 4 February. The main topic of discussion will be the draft of the International Convention on Balancing Counter-terrorism and Human Rights, as well as an introduction of the International Initiative on Human Rights and Counter-Terrorism, coordinated by GNRD.

This is an historic gathering of government leaders, academics, human rights defenders and other experts from more than 40 countries who will weigh in on one of the most pressing issues of the day: terrorism,” said GNRD President, Dr. Loai Deeb. “And, while governments must confront the growing and ever-changing networks of terror, they also must be mindful of protecting citizens’ human rights. It’s a balance that must be struck within the frameworks of international law,”.

The conference will be conducted at the Hotel President Wilson, 47, Quai Wilson, Geneva. For more information see: www.gnrd.net.
