Amnesty International at Davos
Irene Khan, the Secretary General of Amnesty International, is blogging from the World Economic Forum at Davos.
I was involved in setting up the blog, together with my colleagues at Headshift – and it’s something I’m particularly proud of – I hope people read her blog, and think about what she is saying.
From her latest post – Terrorism: A comprehensive response, or an opportunity missed?
Across the world, governments are actively undermining human rights in the name of the fight against terrorism. How far has this process of erosion actually inflamed terrorism, rather than staunching it – particularly given that these measures have all too often targeted and discriminated against those very communities whose support is needed to fight terrorism?
