Hakim will be interviewing Valerie Peay, director of IOHR who will be speaking about the launch of the first human right TV channel and her experience in using digital technology to forward her organisation’s advocacy and mission of defending human rights worldwide.
IOHR will announce its recent partnership with Netgem.TV and the broadcast of its human rights channel which will reach subscribed viewers in twenty countries on four continents across Europe, Australia, Latin America and the Middle East. This model of advocacy and partnership will also allow IOHRTV to reach viewers across multi-platforms including TV, online and mobile.
