Freedom House and Georgetown University's Institute for the Study of Diplomacy cordially invite you to a public keynote address and moderated discussion on diplomacy and human rights featuring Luis Almagro, Secretary General of the Organization of American States, and winner of the 2016 Mark Palmer Prize presented by Freedom House to a diplomat who helps advance democracy and human rights internationally. The discussion will focus on how diplomats and civil society can work together to counter a record ten year decline in freedom globally, with a particular focus on the false narrative that diplomats must choose between ensuring security and promoting human rights.
Speaker: Luis Almagro

Moderator: Diana Villiers Negroponte
