050603 Mary Robinson** - Globalisation and Human Rights

The issue of Human Rights and the Howard government's record in this area has been, since the 2001 federal election, an almost daily front page issue. But human rights are not an obscure, academic pursuit. Gobal institutions need effective means by which to enforce the international agreements nations have signed and there needs to be means to coerce those nations who choose to opt out of signing treaties meant to sustain and nurture their communities. Radical action is needed to shift patterns of globalisation to Make Poverty History and achieve human rights for all people.

Mary Robinson was the first female President of the Republic of Ireland. She is also a former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and is currently the Honorary President of Oxfam International. She is also the Executive Director of Realising Rights: The Ethical Globalisation Initiative based in New York. Mary Robinson spoke to packed house in Melbourne in August 2005.
