Event description

Description

Human rights activists report more than 20,000 people have been killed in the brutal anti-drug war waged by Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, who is responding to criticism by retreating even further from the international human rights community.

Most recently, Duterte began the formal process to withdraw from the UN treaty that created the International Criminal Court, citing a concerted effort by the United Nations to paint him as "a ruthless and heartless violator of human rights".

Philippines Human Rights Commissioner Karen Gomez-Dumpit, a Diplomacy Training Program alumna and trainer, will visit UNSW Sydney to talk about the legislative agenda of the government that affects human rights situations in the country, and what the human rights community is doing to respond to challenges, continue upholding the rule of law and protect the human rights of all.
