Saturday, January 5, 6pm
Wolfgang Kaleck is the founder and General Secretary of the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) in Berlin. The ECCHR is a prominent institution that initiates and takes legal proceedings against individuals, corporations, and state actors who have violated human rights. Kaleck himself has been the leading attorney in many of those high-profile cases. He has acted as Edward Snowden’s trial lawyer.
He is the author of a book originally published in German in 2015 and recently translated into English (2018) under the title Law Versus Power: Our Global Fight for Human Rights. The book goes over several of the cases he and the ECCHR have worked on over the years, including cases in Argentina, Central Ameria, and various African countries.
