13. Powerlessness, Human Rights and Our Responsibility

Jude Lal Fernando

Assistant Professor in Intercultural Theology and Interreligious Studies at the Irish School of Ecumenics and Director of the Centre for Post-Conflict Justice, Trinity College Dublin.


16 Jan.-20 Febr. 10.30-12.00 noon

In democratic societies like ours we believe that there are no tyrannies. Yet, from homelessness to direct provision, from the uncertainty of employment to human trafficking and from long waiting lists for hospital appointments to rising costs of living we experience sheer powerlessness. How do we overcome powerlessness and regain true democracy against the seen and unseen tyrannies in our midst? What is our civic responsibility in protecting human rights?               €65 (6 weeks)
