We run events frequently. These consist of ad hoc or standalone events, coinciding with significant developments in our work or key dates in the year such as Human Rights Day, as well as regular programmed events.
The Conversation Series is a regular series of events we run with Monash University and our joint initiative, Eleos Justice. This brings together our brightest thinkers and sharpest minds—academics, practitioners, advocates—to weigh in on topical issues pertaining to the death penalty in the Asia Pacific region. All seminars are offered online via zoom.
You can register for upcoming events at the links below.
Practitioners interested in presenting at our Conversation Series are encouraged to contact Mai Sato (firstname.lastname@example.org).
CPJP invites you to our Human Rights Day event hosted by Minter Ellison on Thursday, 9 December, @ 18:30 ADST. Register here.
The event will showcase artistic impressions of individuals at risk of execution/extrajudicial killing confronting their changed reality in Afghanistan post the Taliban takeover. Tune in to hear from our inspiring speakers:
Muzafar Ali, Hazara photographer and human rights activist from Afghanistan, and director of a refugee led program in Indonesia and Thailand.
Azadah Raz Mohammad, PhD candidate at the University of Melbourne and legal scholar from Afghanistan who has worked in close collaboration with the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission and the Afghan Ministry of Justice,
and moderated by film producer and director of Savage Films, Maggie Miles.
There will also be an opportunity to bid for a special piece of art, Friends by Yosl Bergner, and a guest appearance by Shaike ‘I am art’ Snir to discuss the meaning of the artwork and its relevance to Human Rights Day and the themes of CPJP’s Afghanistan initiative. CPJP is delighted to announce an online art auction through Lawsons, made possible with the support and vision of Shaike Snir I Am Art. Combine your love of art with support for a good cause. Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing a piece of art not yet marked sold online.
Eleos Justice events
To mark Human Rights Day, Eleos Justice is co-hosting a webinar with the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the EU Delegation to Australia. The webinar will examine the societal ramifications of Pakistan’s blasphemy law, including how the death penalty has curtailed religious freedom and inspired widespread violence. Prior to the event, registrants will also receive access to the documentary film, “The Accused: Damned or Devoted”.
