The Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK (AOHR UK) invites you to participate in a seminar concerning the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Yemen: More than 8 million people are at risk of famine, with more than 22 million in desperate need of aid and protection. Yemen is likely to be the famine that will define this era.
International lawyers Joseph Breham and Catriona Murdoch and expert Clive Baldwin senior legal advisor at Human Rights Watch, will be speaking at the seminar in an attempt to draw the world’s attention further to the crisis – described by some as a forgotten war. Those experts will discuss the conflict, the legal and investigative steps, accountability efforts and mechanisms, and the humanitarian aspects to starvation, conflict and food insecurity. The event will be moderated by Rhys Davies a international criminal and human rights law barrister at Temple Gardens in London.
Date: Monday 25th June 2018
Time: 18:30 – 20:00
Venue: House of Commons, Committee Room
