maxresdefaultBy Aleksandar Brisevac, The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy.

Between May 27th and June 1st 2013, the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy in Berlin held a Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy and Human Rights “Towards a Global Human Rights Culture: The Need for a Collective Alliance in the Protection & Promotion of Human Rights”.

The conference provided the platform for activists, experts, academics and world leaders involved in the field of Human Rights to come together, create alliances, and better coordinate their activities, thus promoting better implementation and enforcement of Human Rights in a more effective nature.

One of the speakers at the Symposium was Ms. Leena Azzam, Research Assistant, Law Department, at the American University in Cairo (AUC). Ms. Leena gave a Lecture on the topic of “On Sexual, Economic, and State Security Violence in Post- Revolutionary Egypt: Features of a System of Exploitation”

“Study conducted in 2008 by the ECWR (Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights) disproved the belief that there is a link between how women dress and sexual harassment in Egypt, it happens to all women regardless of class, regardless of religion, and regardless of the way they dress.”

For more of  Ms. Leena Azzam’s Lecture please take your time to watch the video recording.
