#WiseandWine Series: Communicating Human Rights Effectively with Alva Finn

Given global developments in the field of Human Rights, it is no surprise that more and more emphasis is being placed on this topic by the European Union, especially in shaping relations with the international community. It is evident that communicating effectively on Human Rights is a fundamental tool for the reputations and positioning of countries and companies working in the political sphere. This event will focus on the importance of effectively communicating on Human Rights featuring concrete case studies which will highlight how easy it is to get this wrong.



  • The event will be governed by the Chatham House Rule
  • A wine tasting will be hosted after the event
