The René Cassin ‘Human Writes’ Essay Competition

The René Cassin ‘Human Writes’ Essay Competition

Every year René Cassin runs an essay competition to get people thinking about important human rights issues. This year we tackle the two concepts at the core of our organisation; religion and human rights.

Do you have an interest in human rights and would like the opportunity for more people to read your ideas? Read on and get involved.


“Religion and human rights – compatible or conflicting?”
