Juliet Wells addresses an interdisciplinary conference on human rights issues in the Arabian Gulf

18th November 2019

On 16 November 2019, Juliet Wells was invited by the UK Foreign Policy Centre, ALQST and others to speak at a conference on the future of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states. The conference brought together leading academics and activists from the fields of politics, security, history and international law.

In her talk, Juliet addressed the key legal and human rights issues arising in GCC states. She highlighted the international legal mechanisms available to help secure accountability for abuses, as well as the potential utility of domestic mechanisms such as the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018 in the UK and the Global Magnitsky Act in the US.
