The fifth memorable lecture dedicated to prof. Dr. Vojin Dimitrijević

October 12, 2018

Fifth memorial lecture dedicated to prof. Dr. Vojin Dimitrijević was organized in Human Rights House. This year’s lecture titled “The Need to Fight for Human Rights” was held by Prof. dr. Mandred Nowak.

Manfred Nowak is a professor of international law and human rights at the University of Vienna and Secretary General of the European Inter-University Center for Human Rights and Democratization (EIUC). Professor Nowak was UN Special Rapporteur on Torture (2004-2010), UN Expert on Missing Persons in the Former Yugoslavia (1994-1997) and Judge of the Human Rights Chamber for Bosnia and Herzegovina (1996-2003). Currently, as an independent expert, he is leading the United Nations Global Study on Children Deprived of Liberty.

Vojin Dimitrijevic, a professor of international law and director of the Belgrade Center for Human Rights, died on 5 October 2012.  Vojin Dimitrijevic was not only one of the leading experts in the field of international law, human rights and international relations, but also a responsible and active public figure who did not hesitate to invest his personal authority and unwavering engagement for goals that many of us believe are unattainable in Serbia. Vojin Dimitrijevic was one of those intellectuals who considered that their social and political engagement is their essential duty.
