RFK Switzerland focuses on two programs:
Speak Truth To Power
The educational material for Swiss students is currently being developed in a collaborative effort between the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Foundation, the Centre for Human Rights Studies of the University of Zurich, and the Swiss Universities of teacher training of Fribourg and Lucerne.
Dr. Sandra Hutterli, Vice President of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Foundation, oversees the development of the educational material. Dr Hutterli was a former member of the management board of the Swiss Conference of Cantonal Ministers of Education (EDK) and an education expert in the European Council and the European Union.
Swiss Kennedy Forum
In 2016, the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Foundation plans to bring to life an open discussion platform that deals with selected human rights issues. The Swiss Kennedy Forum will be hosted by the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Foundation four times per year (i.e. spring, summer, fall, winter) at different locations across Switzerland. The Swiss Kennedy Forum events will be structured as panel discussions in front of an audience of approximately 200-300 guests.
Events at the Swiss Kennedy Forum will be carried out in close collaboration with the Centre for Human Rights Studies of the University of Zurich.
