Gerald Knaus was invited to speak at TEDxGraz on "How human rights die – why the human rights movement needs to be reinvented".

Today the human rights momement and its supporters are on the defensive across Europe and the US. Illliberal and autocratic leaders appear full of confidence, boasting of a popular mandate to rewrite the rules for the future of European politics, and to redefine what is shameful and what is honourable.

Looking at three fundamental human rights issues – refugee rights, torture and political prisoners – and at developments in Europe in recent years Gerad examined dramatic setbacks, the failure of many current strategies to protect rights and policy options for activists to mobilise democratic majorities in their defense … and make an impact.
