UCL Institute for Human Rights Symposium: The Ethics of Human Rights Philanthropy
UCL Faculty of Laws - Graduate Wing |
1 - 2 Endsleigh Street | London | WC1H 0EG |
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
This symposium will address the ethical challenges presented by philanthropy towards human rights organisations, both academic and non-academic. In particular it will consider recent charges that this kind of philanthropic giving distorts national politics; academic priorities; and undermines the will of Parliament.
Against the background of the Woolf report, the panel will consider the ethics of philanthropic giving and how this form of funding might be treated so as to avoid accusations of bias, ‘opinion-buying’, and research agenda setting by donors.
Chair: Professor Philippe Sands QC
Panellists: Sigrid Rausing (Rausing Trust) Professor Jonathan Wolff (UCL Philosophy) Anthony Tomei (Director, Nuffield Foundation) Dr George Letsas (UCL Laws)
