The Humanity in Action International Conference is the annual gathering of young and established leaders committed to promoting human rights, diversity and active citizenship in their own communities and around the world. The 2016 International Conference will be held from June 23 to June 26 in Athens, Greece. 

The 2016 International Conference investigated a range of critical issues concerning Greece's political and economic situations. Greece is currently at the forefront of multiple intersecting crises – foremost the migration crisis, as Greece is the first destination for hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees, as well as a hub for human trafficking. Greece is also in the midst of a financial crisis as the country’s institutions and civil society continue to fracture under the pressure of the recession in Europe and the country's ties to the European Union. 

The conference included keynotes, discussions and workshops with leading Greek and international experts. It also featured the annual Senior Fellow Reunion Dinner, skills training sessions, networking opportunities and tours within Athens.
