Witchcraft and Human Rights: From Horror to Hope

Witchcraft and Human Rights: From Horror to Hope


In numerous countries around the world, harmful witchcraft-related beliefs and practices have resulted in serious violations of human rights.

With uncompromising photography by Vlad Sokhin, Joe Wood, Christo Geoghegan and Under the Same Sun, this exhibition highlights individual cases of witchcraft-related human rights violations from across the world.

Organised by experts in the field and launched at the UN Human Rights Council headquarters in Geneva, this exhibition highlights the need for the urgent incorporation of this issue into existing work in human rights. It will coincide with an international conference at Lancaster University that looks to highlight and understand the extent of the challenges linked to beliefs in witchcraft across the world.
