The Oxford Human Rights Hub and the Martin School's Human Rights for Future Generations Programme are pleased to launch a new video, providing an overview of 'Women and Poverty: A Human Rights Approach' - an international conference held in Kigali, Rwanda, in April 2014.
From 28-30 April 2014, the Oxford Human Rights Hub (OxHRH), led by Professor Sandra Fredman, with funding from The Law Foundation, in partnership with The Oxford Martin School programme on Human Rights for Future Generations, the University of Cape Town and with support from Oxford alum, the Chief Justice of Rwanda, Hon Sam Rugege hosted a global conference on women in poverty in Kigali, Rwanda. The conference brought together and created a network of leading actors in a variety of disciplines working on poverty, gender equality and human rights. The opening speech was delivered by the First Lady of Rwanda, Her Excellency Mrs Jeannette Kagame and the OxHRH was particularly delighted to have the Minister of Gender and Family Promotion Hon. Gasinzigwa and Dean Timothy Endicott participate in the conference.
