Human Rights Speakers

Are you looking to challenge, provoke, and inspire your audience? There are few topics more emotive, controversial, and significant than human rights. At Aurum Speakers Bureau, we represent a portfolio of the world’s best human rights speakers, including human rights lawyers, politicians, and Nobel Peace Prize winners.

Most experts define human rights as a set of basic, universal, and inherent rights that every human being possesses. Their nature is such that human rights are not earned. There are no qualifying criteria, besides being human, and these rights apply irrespective of ethnicity, gender, nationality, and other designations. A diverse range of human rights activists, organizations, and lawyers work tirelessly to defend human rights all around the world. Many focus on a specific field, such as women’s rights, LGBT rights, or ethnic minority rights. Some work to address specific human rights abuses, while others seek to raise the profile of human rights as a broader concept.

Sadly, human rights are not applied equally around the globe. Many interpret the rise of populism as a threat to long-respected rights, and even Western cultures can struggle to maintain a balance between civil liberties and public safety. Against this backdrop, the issue has never felt more relevant. Our selection of leading human rights speakers will inspire your audience to become part of the debate.
