London European Leadership Conference from June 15th to 16th under the theme ‘Human Rights – Protection of the Un-Empowered and Dispossessed.’ Distinguished delegates from many European countries will be in attendance. A draft programme can be found below listing topics as well as confirmed and invited speakers.
The European Leadership Conference (ELC) is sponsored by the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) and Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP) and is part of a series being held in Parliaments and at UN institutions around Europe. For reports of previous ELCs please follow this link.
Human rights concerns are a major driving force behind current events. Those presented here have been selected as particularly pertinent to the overarching theme of the event by human rights specialists drawn from among UPF’s and WFWP’s ‘Ambassadors for Peace’ network. The spirit of The U.N.’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights resonates very strongly with UPF’s and WFWP’s sense of the sacred value of humanity and with their vision of humankind as ‘One Family under God’. After arrivals on June 14th the conference programme will convene on June 15th in the House of Lords with speakers including Baroness Sandip Verma (UK government spokesperson for Business, Innovation and Skills), Willy Fautré (Human Rights Without Frontiers International), Keith Best (C.E.O. Freedom from Torture), Imam Dr Abduljalil Sajid, Lord Ahmed of Rotherham, hosted by UPF- UK Patron, Lord King of West Bromwich. The second day of the programme, June 16th will take place at the Royal National Hotel on Russell Square and will explore insights into education for human rights and dignity.
