The Annual Front Line Defenders Lecture 2017


Front Line Defenders, Trinity College Dublin and University College Dublin are delighted to be co-hosting Hauwa Ibrahim at this year’s Front Line Defenders Annual Lecture. Hauwa will introduce her current work "Mothers Without Borders: Steering Youth Away from Violent Extremism" and will also take questions about her work as a prosecutor, defense lawyer and human rights defender.

A well-respected lawyer and author, Hauwa is best known for her work using Sharia Law to defend women convicted unjustly under the Sharia legal system. In 2005, she was honoured with the European Parliament’s Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought. She has been a visiting professor in several countries and is currently teaching and conducting research at Harvard University.

Hauwa will speak at the Royal Irish Academy on 27 March at 6:30 PM.

En avril 2015, Front Line Defenders et Verso Book ont publié La Lucha: l'histoire de Lucha Castro et des droits humains au Mexique - le premier d'une série de romans graphiques non fictionnels. La Lucha met en scène les histoires vraies de femmes défenseuses des droits humains (FDDH) dans le nord du Mexique, qui sont confrontées à des défis meurtriers pour promouvoir les droits humains, la justice et la responsabilité.
