Amnesty International Summer Lab Lampedusa

  • Elena Manfredi

Since 2011, the island of Lampedusa has hosted the Amnesty Training and Activation Camp for Human Rights. In August 2018 - In the island symbol of death and hope - 50 people came from every part of Italy to understand and train with experts and protagonists of migration issues. Within the macro theme of human rights, issues related to the rights of migrants and refugees were explored, with a focus on hate speech that often attacks these vulnerable people. A journey from the roots of the discrimination that underlies many violations, crossing the complex facets of the current situation and the possible solutions told by experts, protagonists and witnesses.
