NGO Advocacy, Youth-led Movements, and LGBTIQA+ Initiatives

Join YDS for an evening focused on human rights, exploring the non-state sector and its role in strengthening international governance and accountability. We will be joined by Dr Carla Winston and Jacob Thomas, two experts with a wide and varied range of experience.
