Václav Havel Human Rights Prize 2018

  • Where: Prague Crossroads, Zlatá 1, Prague
  • When: October 10, 2018, 12:30 – 19:30

The sixth edition of the international conference in honour of the winner of the Václav Havel Human Rights Prize, which is bestowed by the Václav Havel Library, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and the Charter 77 Foundation.

In three panels – a discussion with the prize’s winner and two finalists; the Evil Around Us; and the Evil Among Us – the conference The Unbearable Lightness of Evil will explore the neglect of human rights and growing intolerance, prejudices and xenophobia not only in authoritarian states but also in a number of Western democratic societies. 

The conference will be attended by politician and women’s rights advocate Edipcia Dubón (Nicaragua), human rights advocate and political activist Mahienour El-Massry (Egypt), MEP and psychologist Zsuzsanna Szelényi (Hungary), historian and journalist Adam Michnik (Poland), co-founder and director of the organisation People in Need Šimon Pánek and other noteworthy guests.
