Baptist Church Hall, 34 Groom Street, Hughes
In recent years, Magnitsky Laws have emerged across the globe, including in the US, UK and Canada. These laws are aimed at targeting human rights abuses and corrupt activities. They have been a focus of attention in response to the recent coup in Myanmar, to the gross human rights violations targeting Uyghurs in China, and the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. In this talk, Simon Henderson will examine the global Magnitsky movement and how Australia should frame its laws to ensure that human rights abusers are held accountable.
