In this Reboot Republic, Rory talks with Mary Lawlor, Special Rapporteur on Human Rights Defenders about her assessment of the war on Gaza, and the role of human Rights Defenders in highlighting human rights violations. She highlights that what Israel is doing in Gaza is a form of collective punishment and is at risk of becoming genocide. We discuss how important international solidarity and public action is. Ms Lawlor is an Adjunct Professor of Business and Human Rights in the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI), School of Business, Trinity College Dublin. She has worked extensively with and on the situation of human rights defenders. In 2001 she founded Front Line Defenders – the International Foundation for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders.
