We were delighted to have the opportunity to interview Dr. Katherine Theodotou recently at her London offices to discuss everything from Brexit, human rights cases, her campaign Justice For Lawyers and how we can all be better humans.
In a wide-ranging interview, Dr Theodotou gave us insights into her career as a prominent human rights lawyer throughout the years, how the current political landscape – with sharp left and right leanings – has changed the way we treat our fellow humans in crisis, and how important democracy is to aid the fight against international terrorism. We also discuss the Mental Health Act and the treatment of those in mental institutions, and how by amending legislation we can create a better care environment for the vulnerable to ensure that human rights are protected for everyone.
As a bi-lateral lawyer operating across two countries and having spent time in war zones across the world, it was a privilege to sit down and hear her unique perspective on human rights laws in a volatile and ever-changing world.
