We run conferences that investigate the stories and histories behind today’s headlines.

Our conferences convene Humanity in Action Fellows, Senior Fellows, board members, friends, supporters and partners to discuss the most pressing issues of our time. They address past, present and future human rights and social justice issues on both sides of the Atlantic.

We like to keep our conferences interactive, dynamic and rich in formats. They feature keynotes, panel discussions, breakout sessions and workshops with leading local and international activists, artists, journalists, policymakers and speakers. We conceive of our conferences as spaces for creation and platforms for collaboration and community. They are designed to provide ample opportunity for networking, developing new cooperations and incubating project ideas. 

In 2017 and 2018 alone, our conferences brought together over 1,000 speakers and 8,000 participants.
